About Irritability Associated With Autistic Disorder
A child with autistic disorder may already have problems with communication and social interaction. Irritability adds another layer that can cause issues at home, with family, and at school.
Irritability may cause your child to throw temper tantrums, harm himself or herself, become aggressive, or experience other symptoms, such as:
- Inappropriate screaming or yelling
- Depressed mood
- Quickly changing mood
- Demanding behavior
- Crying in response to apparently minor annoyances
While there isn’t a cure for irritability associated with autistic disorder, certain behavioral therapies and medications can help improve irritability. Together, they could play an important part in your child’s total treatment plan.
