Folinic acid improves verbal communication in children with autism and language impairment: a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial

CONCLUSIONS
In this small trial of children with non-syndromic ASD and language impairment, treatment with high-dose folinic acid for 12 weeks resulted in improvement in measures of verbal communication as compared with placebo. These findings should be considered preliminary until treatment is assessed in larger multicenter studies with longer duration.
