Have a problem with aggressive behavior in your child? Get help here!

Dr. Ralph Ankenman presents new diagnoses and treatment options for children who have severe disruptive meltdowns at home or school. Referred to as Immature Adrenaline Systems Over-reactivity (IASO), this approach is based on the relationship between aggression and the body's adrenaline systems. Therefore, IASO does not require psychotropic drugs. Instead, IASO reduces or eliminates psychotropic drugs from a child's regimen. IASO stops episodes of violence and aggression in patients with autism, bipolar disorder, developmental disabilities, and many with no mental health diagnosis at all. Standard psychotropic drugs often do not fully resolve these behaviors and lead to unnecessary side effects. A companion website enables caregivers and parents to discuss and share tips about this new approach.
