So far as medical science is aware, there is at present no cure for autism. That’s not to say that people with autism don’t improve, because many improve radically. But even when people with autism increase their skills, they are still autistic, which means they think and perceive differently from most people. People with autism may receive many types of treatments. Treatments may be biomedical, sensory, behavioural, developmental or even arts-based. Depending upon the person, certain treatments will be more successful than others.
