There are many established and new autism treatments and interventions in the domains of medicine, education and behavior. Biomedical interventions are those that attempt to focus on the physical needs of the person as a biomedical organism, addressing deficits or encouraging weaker pathways by medical or chemical means.
The following summary (http://www.autism-society.org/living-with-autism/treatment-options/summary-of-biomedical.html) surveys some of the common biomedical interventions in current autism treatment, such as the gluten-free/casein-free diet, addressing food sensitivities, use of supplements, gut treatments, sulfation and immune system regulation. These treatments are summarized by an engineering scientist who volunteers his time to several autism research and affiliate activities, and who is also an experienced parent of a young adult with autism. Again, it is important to keep in mind that each person with autism is unique and may respond better to some treatments than others.
