My son is 7 years old. Diagnosed with mild autism when he was 3. Currently, showing hyperactivity, unable to sit still without supervision. Seems restless all the time. He has delayed speech development. He is not on any medication but under behavioral therapy.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Autism, unfortunately, is sometimes associated with an array of other behavioral co-morbidities like intellectual disability and ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). The symptoms you described are almost suggestive of ADHD. Along with behavior therapy, medicines like Methylphenidate, Amphetamines, and Atomoxetine are very helpful in controlling hyperactivity and attentional problems. These medicines are FDA approved for such problems.
