My 8 year old son has autism and is VERY HYPER and I need help!!!!! He has a doctors appt tomorrow (neurolgy). I am hoping that someone out there has experienced what I am going through and has some helpful advice to share. He is non stop from about6-7am til 9pm and i don't know what to do!!!! He has start pinching and scratching again when he gets excited and/or anxious. He just a couple of days ago tried to bite me.... He also jumps around with his bare feet super hard on the tile floor ( i know this has got to hurt after awhile) He also pounds the walls, floors, tables, and almost any piece of furniture repeatidly, (which also should hurt). I dont know what to do. Does anyone know of any medications that could help with this behavior?
I know that there are bevioral stratagies that can help. I have tried that and it didnt really work for him.
Please any advice is welcome.
