Hi there I am new to this but wondered if anyone could help me.
I have 2 daughters one who is 8, the other who is 6 and is autistic and think she may also have PDA (Pathological Demand Avoidance). Home llife and school life are a nightmare she is really aggressive and violent and hits other children too. My eldest daughter is also at breaking point like myself. My daughter, who is autistic, is a bright, intelligent and can be a loving little girl, but has meltdowns after meltdowns. Things have got that bad I have rang Soc. Services for help I am at my wits end. She is now going to be prescribed Risperidone, but after reading all about it I am in a state due to the side effects.
Is there anyone on here who can put my mind at rest.
