Some Children With Autism May See Improvements In Symptoms, Functioning By Age Six.

HealthDay (1/29, Doheny) reports that a study published online Jan. 28 in JAMA Psychiatry suggests that “more than 10 percent of preschool-age children diagnosed with autism saw some improvement in their symptoms by age six,” and “20 percent of the children made some gains in everyday functioning.” Researchers arrived at that conclusion after following 421 youngsters “from diagnosis (between ages two and four) until age six, collecting information at four points in time to see how their symptoms and their ability to adapt to daily life fared.”
