Teaching children on the autism spectrum how to take medication

Children experiencing sensory overload while trying to take medication can be frustrating for caregivers and the child alike. That’s why we created this guide, which was medically reviewed by our team of pharmacists for safety and accuracy, to provide advice for medication administration. Topics covered include:

  • Special tips for administering pills, liquids, or injections to children with autism
  • Proven techniques to help children with autism learn how to take meds, such as shaping, stimulus fading, positive reinforcement, modelling etc
  • Why children with autism may struggle with ingesting medications
