Autism cannot be cured, but treatments can help those with autism learn to function better in the world. They can help an autistic person learn to relate to others, do purposeful activities, communicate, take care of himself or herself, and more. It's common for someone with autism to attend individual programs for behavior and skills development that may involve the help of a psychologist, special education teacher, speech therapist, occupational therapist, and more. Medications may also help control symptoms. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how autism is treated, what to expect from treatment, and much more.
