Optimal Outcome for Autism

Research this month in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry investigated the controversial topic of recovery in autism by comparing “optimal outcome” individuals to those with high functioning autism and typical development. The optimal outcome group did not differ significantly from the typical development group on the study’s main measures. Importantly, the optimal outcome group appeared to have less significant social deficits in early development than the high functioning autism group, although both groups had equally severe communication deficits and repetitive behavior early on.
