Autism Often Not Diagnosed Until Age 5 or Older: U.S. Report
Date:5/24/2012

mptoms are autism-related or a co-existing condition, but many will try various drugs to alleviate the symptoms.

"The findings with respect to psychotropic medication use is in line with previous findings," Dawson said. "Children with autism often have co-occurring conditions, such as ADHD and anxiety, which are often helped with medication."

Because some of the drugs to treat those conditions can be powerful, Colpe said it was a good sign that so many children (upwards of 90 percent) were also receiving some other sort of treatment, indicating that they are being monitored by a physician.

"They are getting a multi-mode treatment," Colpe said.
