A new study shows that some children may actually grow out of autism.

The study looked at 34 school-age children and young adults who were diagnosed with autism earlier in life.

But now appear to be functioning normally.

And no longer suffering from the developmental condition.

Researchers did not uncover the reason why certain children made a turnaround.

They plan to further examine brain functioning and review records on any interventions the kids received.
