    Thank you. My son is 10. The dr suggested we look into adzenyas and call later next week to make a decision. We just can’t find the right medication.

    Thank you so much for your response Penny! I truly think my son has autism. We’ve had a terrible time finding medicines that work for my son. He’s super sensitive to them and when we do find so this it doesn’t seem to work for long. Socially, he’s so far behind his peers, but he’s an amazing athlete so the boys tend to accept him. He’s now at a therapeutic school and they are truly interested in doing what’s best for him. His three year re-eval is in the fall and I am going to ask for them to give him the ADOS. I called a few neuropsychologists today and the soonest I can get him in is October and they don’t take our insurance so I think going through the school would be our best bet. Thank you again!

    Thank you for your response Penny. You’ve responded to many of my posts and our boys sounds very similar. I’ve thought my son has autism for years, but have not gotten the diagnosis. The closest we’ve gotten is social pragmatic communication disorder. I still think he has autism, but none of his therapists, teachers, or social workers agree with me. He tends to run anxious, but I don’t think he has anxiety. I am going to check out the articles you posted and see what they have to say.

    Also, who did you go to get the autism diagnosis? So far, I can’t even get anyone to give him the ADOS. We’ve had two full neuropsych, plus testing in school and they all say it’s a waste of time. He’s getting lots of support at school, he’s at a therapeutic day school, but I think in the future, it would be helpful.

    Thank you!
