A study examined developmental changes in symptoms retrospectively in 28 verbal children (ages 7-20) with autism. Findings indicate a significant improvement in three main domains. Improvement occurred in more symptoms in the social rather than the communication domain, and for more communication symptoms than the restricted interest and repetitive behavior domains.
