Re: Autism and medication
My son has AS and sensory + anxiety issues. I have him in behavioral therapy but refuse meds. He can function without them, and I want to see how far he can go using the tools the therapist gives him before I ever consider meds. If the anxiety were to grow worse or impede his functioning in any way, of course he'd get meds. But we're not there yet and I hope to God we never will be. For his sensory issues he will soon be attending an age appropriate group therapy session called the Picky Eaters Group. Can you ask your pedi or child's therapist if there is anything like that out there for your child?
