Dietary Supplements and Autism Ranking: Unable to rate

Future Research

There is a need for further research into the use of dietary supplements for people on the autism spectrum. Specifically there is a need for studies which:

  • Use more robust methodology, for example, large-scale, randomised, double-blind trials carried out on several sites
  • Replicate and extend existing research into those dietary supplements which appear to be effective
  • Identify which individuals are most likely to benefit from which supplements
  • Any future research should involve people on the autism spectrum to review the efficacy and ethical basis of the intervention.
