Parents Celebrate Son's Autism Cure, But Some are Skeptical

Eleven years ago, a child was given the heartbreaking diagnosis of autism. Doctors said he would never speak again. Now at 13, Jake Excorn is indistinguishable from his peers.

Jake was a healthy baby who hit all of his developmental milestones. Then, between the ages of 17 months and 2 years, his behavior started to change.

After two years of intensive therapy, Jake's parents say they got their little boy back.

Some skeptics believe full and complete autism recovery is impossible, but is it?
