No : Autism can be treated, and people can develop many skills, but there is no "cure". Anyone who says they can cure it is likely trying to scam you. But early and intensive treatment can work wonders. Also be vigorous about keeping them healthy. A child who is ill cannot benefit as much from interventions.
