In brief: Evidence-based

Treatment of autism is intensive, repetitive behavioral & educational therapy at the child's developmental age.
When a young child is ready, "peer therapy" is effective, adult-supervised play with a neurotypical peer in multiple settings. Group therapy at age 6 & > is repetitive, rote training in basic skills. Dan & other unproven therapies are reviewed in "pediatrics" nov 2012, on aap.Org or app.
