Do the Symptoms of Autism Change Over Time?
Posted in Autism / Autism... by Sharecare on Jun 04, 2014
Much of the answer to this question lies with how aggressively parents have pursued an autism diagnosis (the earlier the better) and have accessed the Early Intervention service system.With a proper understanding of your child's needs and talents, and a program of therapies tailored to meet your family's needs, your child's symptoms of autism can become less noticeable.

Additionally, there have been some children diagnosed autistic who later had the diagnosis withdrawn for making academic or social improvements. Some adults with autism have had the time and patience to "make peace" with their autism such that they are better able to assimilate with the world (for certain durations) better than they would have as children.
