hello Mr Jain, you have not mentioned what medicine he is on for myoclonic jerks because some medicines cause hyperactivity so please consult a paediatric neurologist who will advise you. this is better than going to autism centres directly as the neurologist will evaluate your child and diagnose if he has autism and he will treat him accordingly and also refer you to the appropriate training centre.
