Pervasive development disorder

My son is 4 years and 7 months old.
He’s been diagnosed with Pervasive development disorder (non-specific).
A paediatrician suggested Risperdal(for head banging and aggression) and Ritalin (for concentration).
Should we try this – or get a second opinion?

Do not put your child onto those medications, please. Do some research - this is not your only option.

Go for a 2nd opinion, your child deserves that at least.
