  • Your pediatrician Should be able to help with both or you can ask them to give you a referral to someone else that they know could address the issue better.

  • I would go see a psychiatrist. They are better informed on medications for autism and their issues. They are also better informed on medications for these issues.

  • A psychiatrist, counselor or counseling social worker. A pediatrician can't really help with either issue.
