While there is no 'cure' for autism, there are some approaches that people use to help with various difficulties they may experience. Below are some of the main approaches we use at The National Autistic Society.

There are many approaches, therapies and interventions, making it difficult to make decisions about which one is right for you, or for your child. No two people with autism are the same and what may work for one person may not work for another.

Research Autism exists to research into interventions. Their comprehensive listing includes reviews of which interventions have been subject to independent scientific research and testing. We therefore recommend that you visit www.researchautism.net.
