How Do You Handle Agressive Behavior?

How Do You Handle Agressive Behavior?

Hi! My grandson has been too anxious lately and we're desperate!!! Please someboy help us!!! He's been bitting and pulling out our hair
nb, we don't know what to do to make him understand, we don't believe in physical punishments and we're aware he doesn't do it intentionally. He's non-verbal. We don't want to use Risperdal because I've read that it may cause besity and diabetes. We've tried 5HTP, weighed therapy, and physical activity to help him. Any suggestions?

Has Anyone Tried Intense ABA For Aggressive Behaviors?

Has Anyone Tried Intense ABA For Aggressive Behaviors?

Has anyone tried ABA therapy for severe aggression? Some of it I agree with but than there are some components of it I don't agree with.

And to make matters worse she said not to clean the vomit up until he… read more

My 2 Yr Old Was Diagnosed With Moderate Autism

My 2 Yr Old Was Diagnosed With Moderate Autism

My son is 2 yrs old he was diagnosed with moderate autism. He is non-verbal, little eye contact, little interaction and he wanders. He is very very active, he never sits down to eat, watch his favorite movie or to be read to. My question is how many of you have children that have some of this in common and do you have any suggestions for me. Thanks

Trying To Find Behavioral Therapy And Pros And Cons?

My son has developed new behavior problems on top of the usual ones we have. He just turned four and has now started being rough with others not just himself.
