my son will be turning 3 in August. He has recently become very aggressive. He smacks, bites, pulls hairs and it is getting worse. He will hit very hard then laugh at you and do it again. He is a head banger. His therapist says I need to try and get it under control before it gets really bad. She said if he becomes a danger to himself I may need to put him in a facility until he gets out of this behavior. He hardly sleeps, he does not speak he doesn't eat normally. I am afraid of just how bad he is going to get. spanking, time-outs,bear hugs, and stern voices are not helping. He attacks adults and therapists all the time. Sometimes out of anger other times just to do it... Does anyone have any advice.

I found this very interesting article,here is the excerpt.

As with any other problem behaviour, the first step in treatment is prevention. Infants and toddlers tend to become aggressive in some pretty predictable patterns. Rough play, crowded conditions, being tired, hungry or uncomfortable can all provoke aggressive outbursts in a young child. When roughhousing with a youngster, keep a special eye out for the point where the " play aggression" moves beyond play. When young kids get overexcited, they are likely to forget the rules. Do not let their mouths get close to anyone else's skin and make sure they do not handle any dangerous objects. Take a pause every few minutes to calm everyone down and get emotions back under control. In a classroom situation, make sure there are lots of toys and plenty of space and time for outside play. Large motor activities are great for encouraging young kids to play together. Reward positive behaviour when you see it. Hugs, gentle touches, sharing and co-operation should be noted and rewarded with lots of attention.

Hi. I work in a school district, as a special-education paraprofessional. I have been blessed to care for and help many different children of various ages, with a variety of challenges. I recently listened to / watched a woman share her incredible story of raising a son with autism. It touched me deeply. Her son was healed, a few years back, and continues to improve in his schooling. I ordered her book and found so much hope in her experience. Hope that applies to everyone, including families with autism but not limited to only autism. My heart goes out to all. If anyone is interested in the details of the book and the radio / t.v. program, please e-mail me at [email protected] (Since it is my understanding that some things cannot be posted.) With excitement, encouragement, and heart-felt appreciation and compassion to every family touched by especially autism...There IS Hope.
