My SIL has a 2 year old little boy who has not officially been diagnosed with autism yet.. but i am 100% pos that he will be at his next apt.. (they had to get hearing and blood work done first)

She asked me to find information on the % of children who recover from autism with the regressive form vs the non-regressive form.. and i cant really find anything about that!?

her son has the non-regressive type of autism.. he has always been autistic.. and i think shes afraid that since hes always been like this that there is no hope..

My son has always had autism, in retrospect he showed signs from infancy. I have no doubt he will never be "recovered", I think he will always have autism, he will just learn how to overcome the negative aspects and function as best he can in the world of typical people.

Ditto to what Crissy said. I am still on the fence wether children can really recover fully from Autism. Like Crissy I think Jay will probaly always have Autism. I am hopeful that Jay will make progress because he already has. Mainly with speech. Since your sister is on the ball and getting a early diagnosis its a good thing.

Yes I agree with others. Alex has always had autism though his symptoms did get alot worse around 1 1/2 - 2 years old. He has made some amazing progress in the past year since starting therapy and school. So I do believe that he will get better at coping with his disorder but I don't think he will ever be fully recovered/cured.

We are in the same boat. I thought he was different from infancy. He took longer took a lot longer to laugh than his twin and he stared at ceiling fans at 6 months old. Then I noticed not responding to his name, not pointing at 18 months...etc. So yup, he has always showed signs.

I agree that there is hope no matter if regressive or always there. I am aiming that Nathan will loose his autism dx before kindergarten and not need an aid in school. To me that would mean that he will still have challenges but he will be pretty darn close to typical children.
