My son is very agressive and his hurt other children me and animals. He doesn't sleep more than 2 hours a night and is doing horrible at daycare. I had him evauluated through a psychologist and she recommended Clonidine for sleep. I talked with a psychiatrist who recommended seroquel a very very small dose however no one wants to actually prescribe him. he has hallucinations and yells and screams at the walls in his room. He is so agressive I have bruises on me daily. No one will medicate due to his age. I am willing to do anything at this point. I have tried melatonin however it doesnt work. I will travel to another state or even to canada if I need to. I am lost and need someone to help him. I think if they medicate him he could function better and learn and be who he really is a wondeful sweet boy. I am from Michigan.
This is happening all over the country. They have nothing in place to do something with these kids. Schools must have special classes that deal with them giving them the treatment they need for education. Do you have a pediatric psychiatrist anywhere near you? There are places to help. autismspeaks.org and autism-society.org is a place to start. I know what its like, my grandson is that way, but he is now 16 and way bigger then my daughter. She had to put him in a residential school because she couldn't handle him anymore. She did find when he was younger cutting sugar and red food coloring from his diet helped with the frequency of the behavior. She was taking him to a.i. dupont children's hospital in wilmington delaware for treatment with sleep and things when he was first diagnosed.
I think those web sites will help you even if its just knowing that you're not alone.
