Therapy Could Help Autistic Children

Posted: Updated:

A new study of autistic children finds therapy improves social and communication skills in some children.

Researchers at Columbia University looked at 7-thousand children and identified a group of so-called "bloomers" who had communication problems but made fast gains during their elementary school years.

Doctors say it's important parents make sure their children are getting the help they need.
