autism, challenging behaviour and medication
My 8 year old boy has high functioning autism. The problem I am having is persistent foul language and rudeness to us at home and people who visit us whom he does not want to be there and general unpleasantness. It can be to adults or children. He can be physically aggressive too but this is less than the constant verbal abuse. He is also hyperactive though does not have an ADHD diagnosis. I am so worried as I am a single mum and he is getting bigger by the day. Does anyone have any experience of medication that my help but not have awful side effects? Very grateful for any assistance.
