Scientists say they have established the first successful treatment for autism, after training parents in how best to respond to the needs of children with the condition.

The study, published in The Lancet, found “striking” and “remarkable” long-term changes after toddlers were enrolled in intensive communication programmes, which aimed to coax them out of their shell.
