Why isn't there a medication for autism?

There's some that only treats the behavioral symptoms, but there's currently none that treats the main symptoms of autism! like Social and Communication deficits, what's taking the pharmacists so long to come up with a medication that directly treats autism

    Because per se, autism is not a disability or mental illness.

    Autism is not like having a cold with clear "treatable" symptoms. Autism is a spectrum. Two people w autism can have very different struggles when it comes to social and communication deficits.
