This entry sounds very like the same uneducated article that was posted in the Express last week.
Whilst children respond well to antibiotics, it is often the antibiotics which have caused many of the problems seen in the autistic community - leaky gut being the major one. Which then leads on to dietary problems and food intolerances.
There are two conditions which would provide a favourable response to being treated with antibiotics - Cystic Fibrosis, and yeast overgrowth. Both are known to come back with a vengeance once the antibiotics are halted. In the case of yeast overgrowth, the problem is heightened, rather than solved.
I would suggest that whoever posted this article, do some proper research and study into autism before repeating this misguided effort.
