In brief: Nothing significant
Naltrexone has been reported to improve some children with autism, but there is no double blind controlled study comparing it with placebo that supports its use as an effective treatment.

In brief: Not yet
Only a handful of studies have tried using Naltrexone to treat severe forms of autism.
The results are mixed and require further study. See http://www.Sciencedirect.Com/science/article/pii/0006322395002979.
