questions about meds for autism-related problems
The big increase in kids diagnosed with autism will raise more questions about meds for autism-related problems.
About 1 in 165 kids is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder in Canada. It's up to 1 in 88 in the U.S.
Behavioural and educational interventions are the cornerstone of therapy...but these are costly and many kids still have symptoms. That's why nearly half of these children end up on meds.
