Kids on the autism spectrum have a wide rage of problems...on my son's evaluation, they put he has autism, adhd, and ocd. If I give my son the right supplements, the adhd and the ocd goes away. In my experiance with my son, I find the dmg 3x a day makes the ocd behaviors go away. When my son was 4, he would have to have all the doors closed and he would pace around the house making sure they were closed. His room had to be very clean, other wise he would freak out if anything was moved, he could only were red clothes....anyway, these went away after taking dmg. I started giving him this supplement about three weeks ago, and even though he really doesn't have ocd behaviors anymore, I find this supplement really gets him to communicate more. Anyway, if you haven't tried dmg yet, it would be worth a try before putting him on a prescription medication.
