Contemplating Medication

“For many parents of kids with autism, there comes a time when they have to consider medication for their child. No, there is no cure for autism, but there are drugs that treat the anxiety and attention deficit that often accompanies autism. That time for consideration arrived for us recently…”

This week’s Patch column takes a closer look at our decision to use medication to treat our son’s anxiety and attention deficit. Read the full story here.


  1. Thank you for the update on Kai's medications. I do hope the correct balance is found quickly. With what I have read about Kai...there isn't too much that could keep him down for long.

    Although I don't know what you, as parents, are going through, in terms of the balancing of medications and waiting for symptoms to either disappear or appear...I do wish both of you well. I am sure it must be, both, nerve wracking and heart breaking to not see your son at his best...and to not be able to do anything, for the time being, to positively affect the outcome.

    All I can say is to hang in there. Whatever is going on now...will not be permanent. I am sure once the doctor gets everything worked out...Kai will be smiling once again.

  2. Thank you for your support and encouragement! We appreciate it!
