Autism Cures - Pseudoscience Dictionary - Debunk - Alt Health - Fake - Junk Science

Pseudoscience: Consists of statements, beliefs, or practices that are claimed to be both scientific and factual but are incompatible with the scientific method (unproven, not testable, or opposed to the consensus of traditional science).


Autism Cures

Definition: According to the FDA “Products or treatments claiming to cure autism are deceptive and misleading because there is no cure for autism.”

Reasoning: Currently, no treatment has been shown to cure ASD, but several interventions have been developed and studied for use with young children. These interventions may reduce symptoms, improve cognitive ability and daily living skills, and maximize the ability of the child to function and participate in the community

The differences in how ASD affects each person means that people with ASD have unique strengths and challenges in social communication, behavior, and cognitive ability. Therefore, treatment plans are usually multidisciplinary, may involve parent-mediated interventions, and target the child’s individual needs. However, there isn’t a known cure for Autism.

More Information

Conclusion: Products or treatments claiming to cure autism are deceptive and misleading because there is no cure for autism. The same is true of many products claiming to “treat” autism or autism-related symptoms. Some may carry significant health risks.
