In brief: No
There are no "natural" herbs or supplements that help with autism.
See nimh for best information. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov. This website outlines appropriate treatments. Many parents, distraught with their child's autism, clutch at the straws of unproven, untested, or downright appalling treatments.

In brief: Not Really
Altho many will try to sell these things, nothing has been consistantly proven to help in solid scientific research.

There is biomedical treatment for autism that should be supervised by a physician with specialized training.
Search for a physician in your area who has this specialization and they can suggest a treatment protocol based on the specific needs of your child.

Unfortunately, the laboratories are proprietary & there are no peer-reviewed scientific studies proving efficacy of such treatments.
