Why the focus of autism research is shifting away from searching for a ‘cure’ | NBC News

For years, researchers have tested and released “treatments” for autism including diet changes and vitamin injections that never seem to have any effect. After failing to cure autism when it began to accelerate, scientists realized that research would have to move in a different direction. Now, the approach is diagnosing autism as early as possible and using therapy to set the child on a trajectory that will help them develop better. Autism has so many varying causes and factors that it may never be possible to cure it; it is better to embrace it.
