Preliminary studies have shown that acupuncture symptomatic relief to children suffering from autism. Although it is difficult at first, it is of the opinion that it is worth it in the long run. This is because during the conventional therapy and treatment requires that the child still remain, acupuncture not. Some say it's a quick fucked on important points in the body.

A group of children in the United States participated in a test to see how effective acupuncture is in children. There are 22 respondents and each of you has once a day for four months of treatment.

But many believe that acupuncture only people with autism can help. Are there other things like maintaining a certain diet to improve one's mood and communication schools are combined. Although it's only in the short term, better than nothing, until a cure is found.

When will the treatment will be found? Only time can tell, there are many other questions answered in the order for doctors to understand to neurological disabilities even better.
