In Autism intensive behavioral therapy helps to improve the social and language functioning of the child. And the medications are required to treat associated psychiatric problems like hyperactivity, aggressiveness, tantrums,self injurious behavior,steriotypies and anxiety symptoms. So the medication depends on the associated psychiatric symptoms. So consult your Child psychiatrist and discuss regarding the associated problems and the need for behavioral therapy by which we can reinforce the chid positive behaviors.
