I'm actually Molly's grandmother (Ama) but I am really concerned about putting a 4 year old on Risperdol. She is autistic. ppd-nos, odd, adhd and has language delays. Given all this, she seems like a pretty normal kid to me. She was 3 years old when she started kindergarten. Thank goodness they hadn't instituted full day kindergarten then! On the medication I note that she is much easier to manage but I almost never have problems with her as long as I don't expect too much. She has gained too much weight and is developing breasts at the age of five! Does any one else have similar experiences. I find it very difficult to give her this medication when it goes so strongly against what I see.
