My son is goin to be 5 is April. In june i got the diagnosis of him fitting the criteria for ASD (Autisim Spectrum Disorder). He is overly active, has violent tendencies, doens't eat meat and has some really awful tantrums. He throws things fights to get into everything, and Loves' to climb. The ped. suggested putting him on medication, but i dont' really know anything about these meds and I dont' know if it's right to medicate a child so young.. Is this a normal feeling or am I just an over protective parent? and does anyone have any suggestions..It would be really appreciated.
