Acupuncture reduces autism scores, according to a new meta-analysis of 27 clinical studies of 1,736 children.

Researchers from Kyung Hee University, in the Republic of Korea, found that whether acupuncture was used alone or combined with other therapies, it improved outcomes for children with autism spectrum disorder as measured by the Childhood Autism Rating Scale and the Autism Behavior Checklist, without causing adverse side effects.
