When One Twin Has Autism

9/2/2013; 7 minutes

Using the Early Start Denver Model, therapists now have Matthew responding to his name, interacting with his family and playing at the same level as his sister, Morgan. While there are still many questions about autism, this intervention has the families of some participants asking, "could there eventually be a cure?" (#24888)
