No: Autism is a label used for a pattern of behavioral, social and learning issues that arise from a poorly defined origin. Supportive care helps the kid over his/her lifetime and most see some improvement. However, no one treatment or group of treatments will cure this process.Ongoing research should help us understand what helps the best.

Short answer, : There will not be a cure. Different problems can cause this, different genetic abnormalities, sometimes exsposure to toxins or infections can worsen or provoke autism in some vunerable children. There are treatments, behavior therapy, and some medications that can help. Different things work for different people.
