I have a question about what meds do u give your childresn for behavior and aggression. Lately Joe has done a 180 on the way he acts he used to be very loving and would act up but occasionally. Now it is everyday a few times a day. Repeatedly doing things we have asked him to stop doing throwing himself down under tables at school throwing extreme fits. We r litterally at our wits end of what to do. We have delayed giving him meds cuz we thought well we can do this he doesn't need it but now I just think his behavior needs something. So here is the question he has appt tomorrow at 2 cali time. What meds if any do you give your asd children?
Any help would be appreciated dh and I just don't know what to do we have a 21 month old too and he has shoved him down and can be pretty mean to him. We just want the best for him and want him to have a better quality of life since he is concidered moderate to severe autism and mild mental retardation. He is almost 5 8-2-07. Even though he is almost 5 he is about 2-3 years delayed according to his psychologist that he was seeing before we moved last year.
Joe has been referred to the pediatric Psychiologist office and will be seen with in the next 2 weeks. He thinks that Joe will benifit from some medication since he is being aggressive towards others and hurting himself. Thank you for your input.
