Views of autism community is divided on this, I would like to elaborate on both the views. You may add your experiences below.

Most youngsters with autism will forever have the disorder. Be that as it may, a modest bunch of studies in the previous three years show that for reasons nobody comprehends, a minority of youngsters, shed the core symptoms necessary for an autism diagnosis.
Researchers looked at parent’s reports on 1,420 kids who once had an autism diagnosis. Around 13 percent of these youngsters “lost the diagnosis” later — meaning they no longer had signs and symptoms that fit on the autism spectrum.
In the event autism as being solely a behavioral issue that slowly goes away with therapy, one is just observing the surface of the condition — what the rest of the world sees. It overlooks how an individual with autism sees the world and feels about themselves, what are the troubles or challenges they are facing on a day to day basis.
“The study confirms that diagnosis of ASD can and often changes as children on the spectrum age and mature. They overcome delays,” says Stephen Blumberg, Associate Director for Science at the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics.

No. Autism cannot just go away. Some will figure out how to deal with their deficiencies however a large portion of those will be mildly autistic. Anyone who is considered severe on the spectrum, will not just lose their autism. These individuals will battle, generally, to pick up the fundamental social abilities to fit into society.
Above all else the truth of the matter is that numerous children are inaccurately determined to have ASD. So some nonzero level of the ASD populace may really have another turmoil which is incorrectly classified.  Therefore, in this trivial population, the ASD diagnosis will, trivially enough, “go away with age”.
