Despite an often negative press, the right medication can be therapeutic for some people. 

The type of medication used is individual and can vary widely as it may be used to combat any aspect of ASD including obsessive or compulsive behaviours, hyperactivity, behavioural problems, depression or anxiety.

If it is suggested that medication could be beneficial to your child do not simply dismiss the idea. While you will need all the relevant facts prior to making a decision, the correct medication given in the right amount may improve the child’s quality of life.

It is vital to monitor any reactions to any medication carefully so that the correct dosage can be determined and any side effects can be minimized - especially if your child has limited communication skills.

Keeping a daily diary can be of help in this situation as it is all too easy to forget exactly what happened when.
