Cognitive, behavioral impairment persists after ASD resolves
April 26, 2015

SAN DIEGO — When an early autism spectrum disorders diagnosis resolves, in which the child no longer meets the diagnostic criteria, there are frequently learning and emotional/behavioral diagnoses that endure, according to data presented at the Pediatric Academic Societies Annual Meeting.

“Autism generally has been considered a lifelong condition, but 7% of children in this study who received an early diagnosis experienced a resolution of autistic symptoms over time,” Lisa Shulman, MD, from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, said in a press release.  “The majority of the children at original diagnosis displayed intellectual disability but at the point of resolution of autistic symptomatology displayed normal cognition.”
