Scalp acupuncture (SA)  may be an effective treatment for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) report Chinese authors. Meta-analysis of 11 trials showed that, compared with behavioral and educational interventions, SA significantly decreased overall autism scores for children both under and over three years old. SA was also found to significantly improve the specific domains of communication, physical ability and behavior in autistic children.
