I'm new to the board. I have an 11 yr old Son w/ AS. He was diagnosed around 5-6 but started showing signs of it from the very beginning. We have had an extremely difficult time with him. He has been on lots and lots of meds. You name it, he's probably been on it. Not much has helped. Currently, he's on abilify, topomax, and propanol (8 pills per day). To me this is way to much medication and we haven't noticed a difference. I was wondering if anyone has had any success with detox, cranial sacral therapy, or anything beyond the norm. I am looking for an Asperger's specialist in the Tampa Bay, FL area for therapy.
Our biggest issue with him is his aggression. He is very violent and has attacked me on several occasions. He has tics. He also cannot deal with disruption of routine. He also has no friends because he has such a hard time making any, which breaks my heart. He has all of the normal AS symptoms but these are the most problematic.
Any advice and suggestions are greatly appreciated. If you found something that works for you I'm eager to hear it.
