I strongly recommend checking him for allergies/sensitivities. I'm sure my dd would have been diagnosed with ADHD if I did not know not to give her artificial food colorings. Check out "Is This Your Child?" by Doris Rapp and "The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived" by Lee Carroll and Jan Tober. Mothering has had articles in the past, perhaps you could order some back copies. Do a search for the Feingold diet on the web. HTH
edited to add: Gosh, there are tons of other therapies out there as well, things like pulling heavy metals out of the system, other dietary changes, and supplements. They are in the articles in the Mothering issue on autism. I don't have mine anymore, and they are sold out, but maybe if you pm a mod, you could get your hands on some pdf files or some other online version. Good luck!
