My son (who will turn 5 in October) was dx on 7/1/10 with Asperger's Syndrome. Something I've felt he's had for over a year now. He requires a one to one aide in pre-school and often exhibits undpredictable and impulsive behaviors (such as dumping toys at clean up time, swiping things off shelves, throwing things, and making odd noises when he does it.) We feel he does these things to get away from the situation. He always has to be in control of play with adults (he doesn't play with children and often tells us he's afraid of them) He is afraid of people looking at him and drawing any attention to him. It breaks my heart. I too suffer anxiety and it kills me to know this is what he may be feeling inside. We are seeing a wonderful therapist and we are working towards getting him the services he needs in his school.
I do wonder about medications though. or homeopathy. I dont want to put my 5 year old on a medication but we are not opposed to it because he is so intense and feel we need to "calm" him in some way (to benefit mostly him!). Please, if you have any experience with any meds/homeopathy share your stories.
