Hmmm, my 8yo daughter took it at 0.5-2 mg before we gave up on it, but I don't think you want to look at children's dosing if you're within the 12-18 range.  I suspect the dosing would more closely align with adult recommendations. 

Jerod talks about the dosing here http://www.crazymeds.us/risperdalDosage.html but it mostly just talks about start-up doses.  I think he covers the "low" range you're asking about.  Mostly because I think bipolar/autism diagnoses use lower doses than for frank psychosis.  The "medium" to "high" seem to be covered here (from the RxList info, which I believe comes from the manufacturer):

Efficacy in schizophrenia was demonstrated in a dose range of 4 to16 mg/day in the clinical trials supporting effectiveness of RISPERDAL
