What benefits can I expect from Chelation in my child with Autism?

While a few cases have shown improvements in eye contact, attention, language, cognition and social interaction, there is not enough scientific evidence supporting these improvements in autism.

Most people believe that Autism is a result of mercury levels in childhood vaccines, and although most studies have proven this idea to be false, some healthcare professionals still also believe that removing metals from the body can improve and alleviate the symptoms of autism.

It has been proven by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) that there is no evidence which suggests that chelation is an effective treatment for autism, and that if done without taking specific measures, it may be harmful. Thus, the AAP doesn't recommend using chelation therapy for autism, except in a clinical trial.
