While no drugs currently exist to “cure” autism spectrum disorder (ASD), researchers are actively investigating drugs that may help manage symptoms associated with ASD. To learn about drugs presently used to manage autism or current clinical trials, please explore the Therapy Room.
No standardized treatments exist for individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Instead, treatment strategies vary based on the type and severity of symptom presentation.
It’s important to consider that not all therapies are equal. While some treatment options have been tested in well-designed studies (evidence-based), others are only now emerging. Some of these are well established (evidence-based) while others maybe promising or emerging therapeutics requiring further assessment of its clinical utility.
