Behavior Gains Possible In Adults With Autism, Study Finds

With intervention, adults with autism can see significant behavioral improvements, according to new research suggesting that the window of opportunity for gains may be longer than previously thought.
Researchers found that using an evidenced-based intervention with young adults on the spectrum led not only to observed advances, but also changes in how the participants’ brains functioned.
The results are meaningful because most studies look at the effects of treatment on children, according to those behind the findings published online in the journal Autism Research.
