Can Children with Autism Recover? If So, How?
TLDR
Evidence that between 3% and 25% of children reportedly lose their ASD diagnosis and enter the normal range of cognitive, adaptive and social skills is reviewed, suggesting possible mechanisms of recovery include normalizing input by forcing attention outward or enriching the environment. Expand
