There is no cure for autism, according to the Autism Society. Treatment is normally given to an autistic patient as a means of learning how to cope with the issues caused by autism.
The treatment given to a particular autistic patient may not be the same as for another patient. It all depends on the patient's strengths, requirements, weaknesses and how he responds to the specific treatment, according to Autism Society. Types of treatment include medication, complementary and alternative medicine, behavioral and communication therapies and dietary approaches, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC. Though there is no precise medication that can cure a patient's core issues, some medication can help him deal with autism better.
