This paper gives an assessment of autism treatment focusing on the controversial use of medication to treat autism. It further discusses the types of medication used, the side effects of medications and the issue of informed consent. The benefits of medication are also described.

From the Paper:

"The use of medication for treatment of autism remains controversial. It is argued that it is not justifiable to give medication to someone that is unable to give informed consent, as with adults with autism. However it is also argued that medicine provided by a doctor can be beneficial to the patients despite their inability to provide consent. Side effects are another issue related to the use of drugs and adults and children vary in their responses to different drugs."
