I am new to this group. My son Chance is 11 and has just been diagnosed in the last 6 months, although he first saw a counselor at around 3 years old. He is very high functioning, so we even saw some disbelief from his teachers, although they are wonderful and accomodated all of our requests even without an IEP. He will be in middle school in a year and I'm concerned that will be when the real challenges start.
I saw a post from a lady on putting her son on medication. We recently got Chance on Wellbutrin. I was wondering if folks can weigh in on what medications seem to work best for their children? I'm sure it varies by the child. Chance also has trouble sleeping sometimes too but we are just having him take melatonin (natural supplement) right now and it's not every night. He has improved greatly with both the Wellbutrin and regular counseling, but not sure if Wellbutrin is the best for him or not.
