Two siblings whose functioning deteriorated in the second year of life met criteria for autism. They recovered after a form of behavior modification that was successful in a previous study. Follow-up of that study and of the siblings demonstrated that recovery was enduring. It is hypothesized that such therapy succeeds by modifying a still-plastic neural circuitry.
