i am trying to find some non-medical alternative ways to help my son in treating his disability, he was diagnoned with PDD-NOS (pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified), which is under the autism spectrum, milder is what im told. I will use speech therapy, just looking for a few little ideas that may help him in his verbal communication, maybe someone has used vitamin supplement that improved their child. Any advice will help!!

Talk to the speech therapist she/he will be able to give you some concrete things to do with your child, he may benefit from Occupational therapy as well. However I am not sure that there are any vitamins or diets that could help with his communication.

The Strattera is for his ADHD. I like it because its not a stimulant. My son told me that this is the first medication hes been on that didnt make him feel funny.

My son has Aspergers and he is going to speech therapy, occupational therapy and some physical therapy. He is taking Strattera as a medication and Folic Acid. I know your looking for a medical alternative but thats what works for him and the Strattera seems to have no side affects.
