I have similar issues with my 6 year old. Tho I don't have any definitive answers, his school have recently bought two books - 'hands are not for hitting' and 'feet are not for kicking'. These seem to have helped him at school although I am still struggling with his aggression towards my younger son. I am looking to buy the books for home too, in the hope that these may help.
I can understand your concerns, I am going through a very similar thing at the moment. I sometimes can't think straight and, even though I know shouting doesn't help, I find myself shouting which makes my son worse :(
Hope everything improves soon for you, Sara ↑
|There are small little booklets you can get or make called social stories, that are a GREAT tool in teaching proper social behaviors for autistic children. They have detailed pictures and simple but strong words to help them better understand! ↑|
Your son hits other children to get their attention. He does not comprehend that it is inappropriate. You can try very simple books, but emotions, not thought will prompt his behavior. Autistic children do not relate consequences to their behavior. The mysterious part of Autism is that Austic children do understand alot, we simply do not know what they understand, particularly if the child is non-verbal. If you want to Email me, you can.
