Research & Treatment

When it comes to selecting ASD treatments for your family member, knowledge is power. On this page, you will find information about the research behind many of the common treatments for individuals with ASD. Some treatments are backed by strong scientific evidence, but others have little or no research support. Our goal is to provide you with a "quick reference" resource to assist you when making treatment decisions or when confronted with new treatment options. We invite you to include this information in your conversations with family, trusted professionals, and individuals recommending or marketing treatments, interventions, exercises, therapies or medicines.
