3 doctors agree
In brief: Possibly
With prompt intensive therapy children seem to show dramatic improvement, sometimes no longer meeting diagnostic criteria for the disorder.A recent study out of columbia university reported significant improvement over a couple of years in approx 10% of the children.
These results are not the norm , however, and most children continue to struggle with their symptoms...Therapy is helpful.
