Research shows that acupuncture improves the mental and physical functions of children with autism and demonstrates improvements in the following areas:
Research also shows that the majority of children have no difficulty in receiving acupuncture with only 8% of children being non-compliant.

Autism is a neural development disorder characterized by difficulties with social interaction and communication. It often involves repetitive behaviors. Autism is a general term for autism spectrum disorder. One autism spectrum disorder is Asperger’s syndrome. Asperger’s syndrome does not have the delays in language development and cognitive development often associated with autism. It is characterized by difficulties with social interaction, repetitive behaviors, and a lack of physical coordination.
