Has anyone had any success getting their autistic child to take Tylenol or other Ned's when they are sick. Would greatly appreciate any tips we tried everything.

I had to put it in my sons drinks. He would try to watch me poor the juice but sometimes I would have a cup with the medicine in it already so all he sees is the juice going in. It worked 75% of the time.

Thanks we already tried mixing it into her food she knows it's in there and won't touch it.

my brother is about max 3rd grade level intel autistic age 35. my parents have always had a hard time getting medication. Best luck its to mix it into apple sauce after having it mashed up and make him drink it down. Even if my brother is WILLING to take his meds it still has to be mixed into something on a large spoon and then washed down quickly. However without knowing what his objections are (if he can articulate them) not sure how much advice I can give.
