Study shows autistic children can improve over time

Posted:

AUSTRALIA (KWWL) -- A new study finds autistic children have varying cognitive abilities, which can actually improve over time.

In general, people with autism have trouble with social interactions and behavior, but have exceptional skills in focusing on details.

But when researchers looked at a group of Australian children with and without autism, they found not all autistic children had the same set of cognitive strengths and weaknesses.

And unlike other research, this study showed most of the children's social and behavior skills improved over time.
