Losing Autism Diagnosis – research report

Dr Lorene Amet, research and education director at Autism Treatment Trust clinic in Edinburgh, Scotland, was interviewed yesterday on BBC Radio Scotland. See link below – Dr Amet comes in at 47 minutes roughly.
The interview comes as a result of the new study published, confirming that some autistic children can be treated and go on to lose their autism diagnosis. The study does not tell us yet what interventions resulted in recovery, but these will be investigated in time – and reported. It is possible for some, to fully recover from their symptoms of communication, social and behavioural impairments. This is the first study to bring debate of autism recovery into the scientific arena.
Dr Amet stresses that autistic children have health issues, which can be addressed and treated, but early intervention in treatment of these physical symptoms, may be the key to recovery.
For the last 6 years Dr Amet has been treating children with very good outcomes. Via the clinic, they receive behavioural, nutritional, medical and dietary interventions. 60% of the children have shown remarkable progress. 25% have achieved life-changing improvements and some have come out of the spectrum altogether.

Thank you Janet Robb for posting this on Facebook.  Here is the link, but be quick only 2 days left to listen. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01pnctb
