My son is 6 and has been diagnosed ASD with anger/behavioural issues. We have been coping with this well, we also have a boy of 9 with Asd, but now I fel stuck. He is becoming increasingly more angry with various situations and although his school is very good the startegies they are trying are no longer working. He has started running away from situations he either does not understand or agree with and his anger seems to kick in, like a knee jerk reaction, wheras before it was very rare and his anger usually had a build up so you could intervene before he got too bad. I am due to see his specialist next month and we have discussed medication before. I just wanted an insight from anyone with children in a similar situation to give me some pointers on meds as I feel he needs something to just take the edge off his immediate angry reactions to everything and to just chill him out a bit. I always said meds would be a final resort but I think we are in that position now and that we are doing all we can, along with his school, and the anger is becoming the main thing holding him back. Hopefully there is somewhere on here that can help or just offer a bit of support. Thankyou.
