My nephew is now 7 years old. He was only diagnosed as autistic about a year and a half ago. He goes to a small rural school that only has special education offered 2 hours a day. They continue to promote him to the next grade each year. He is currently functioning at a 3 year old level both socially and educationally. In some ways he seems like a pretty normal 7 year old. He interacts with his brother and sister very well.
My sister-in-law informed me today, that Ian (my nephew) has started having "melt-down's" that include hitting his head against the wall. I am worried he will injure himself or another child.
I work in a pharmacy, so am familiar with some of the possible medication that is available, but is it the right choice?View Thread
