Lois has a 22 year old son who has been diagnosed with Asperger's. He was in a college program and they told her he was exhibiting inappropriate behavior. She's new to Florida and is leery of putting him in a program she doesn't know anything about, but all he does is spend his days and nights playing video games. He won't listen to her and she is at a loss. She asks for help. Thoughts?

Caroline's 5 year old autistic child was prescribed Adderall XR 10 mg. She thought it a high dose, considering some horror stories she had heard, but felt the doctor must know what he's talking about. Severe reactions resulted, with the normally quiet child screaming in pain and confusion. Talking after hours, the doctor on call, immediately stopped the medication. Now she questions -- should she continue with this doctor, or find someone else? What would you do if this were your child?

This has been a long, hard road that I am walking on.
