Abstract

Autistic schizophrenic children present challenging and baffling problems in treatment. Without attempting to deal again with the controversial issues concerning the definitions and etiological factors of either childhood schizophrenia [1] or the autistic reaction pattern [2], we will refer to the various treatment regimes attempted by Bender and co-workers in the past quarter of a century with these children. Many of the children have been followed subsequently into later childhood, adolescence, and adulthood [3]. Meanwhile, a new group of young autistic children are always available for new treatment endeavors as the new modes become available.
