We started R on medication for his ADHD around the end of grade 3 when we (along with the school team) decided his behaviours were starting to interfere with his ability to learn and socialize at school.
R started having seizures around age 15. It is not uncommon for kids with autism to develop seizures with the onset of puberty. After having a 24 hour EEG (an entire blog post in itself), it was determined R was having complex partial seizures. He later went in for a sedated MRI as a precaution. He has been seizure free since starting medication (tegretol).
Riley attended our neighbourhood public school(s) since kindergarten. He finished high school this past June (2013). Yes…G & I are STILL freaking out!!! We have embarked on a new phase in Riley World...the Wonderful World of Adulthood. I hope you will come back to read all about our new adventures.
