Early Intervention Offers Long-Term Gains For Kids On The Spectrum

Children who participated in an early intervention designed to target symptoms at very young ages are continuing to see benefits from the treatment years later, a new study finds.

The Early Start Denver Model is a nonmedical treatment for children age 12 to 48 months who show symptoms of the developmental disorder. While autism is usually diagnosed in children between the ages of 2 and 3, a growing body of research suggests that diagnosing it early and intervening with one-on-one, parent-led treatment can reduce symptoms in the long run.

This seems to be a very promising development. Will be interesting to see what further research will hold.
