It is difficult to predict outcomes for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), especially for children younger than three years. Factors that have been associated with positive outcomes include:

  1. IQ
  2. Verbal skills – some speech by 5 years of age the good prognosis
  3. Time of diagnosis – later the diagnosis more subtle are the signs
  4. Time of intervention
