Help Ex Wont Give My Son His Meds.

Help my ex wont give my son his meds on the weekends or vacation time he has him. so my son goes days without it and comes home more upset and violent with his sisters and me. I have try to talk to his father about making sure that he gets it but got told that he can give it to himself which the doctor says no because of where he is on the spectrum. I have tired talking to DFCS where I live and got told they cant do anything because I have the child most of the time. What else can I do because… read more

Rolling On The Walls...

Rolling On The Walls...

How do you transition an 11 yo from rolling his whole body on the wall. He doesn't do this all the time just when he goes down the hallway. He loves it and sometimes he doesn't because he knows he's not supposed. Once he starts you can't stop him. He'll go back and forth a few times.

He is high functioning ASD, ADHD, Sensory seeker and behavior issues.

We did OT once and it was a very upsetting experience. He has stopped rolling on the walls...I'm not sure why he was doing it. Still it stopped for now. At the time I think we were very busy and… read more

How Did Behavioral Therapy Assist Your Child That Hits?

How Did Behavioral Therapy Assist Your Child That Hits?

My son has began hitting or tapping when he gets excited. He will do that anything or anyone. I figure its his way of stemming, but it's getting to the point where it can be harmful if he is really excited or really upset. I have been looking into behavior therapy to help control his reactions and just wanted to know some of your experiences with this type of behavior and if you sought out treatment and what was the result during and after treatment? Thank you for all who reply! #SHARINGISCARING

My ds taps his foot loud... he has a lot of negative behavior and for him you would have to take away the house sometimes to get things to work. So we gave up and just remind him to stop. Or we've… read more

How Does Your Child Voice Their Dislike? Looking Higher Functioning K-3 Kids That Don't Want To Leave Home Or Go Out Much.

My daughter has a weird way of vocalizing why she prefers to be at home and never to go somewhere new. She particularly does this more if there is a surprizing change to her schedule or routine. I just got a weird take on her vocalizations from a specialist.

To me she trying to express sensory overload.

She also goes into shutdown in public places with too many people.

I think as a parent we know more then the specialist. As special as they are they don't see your daughter 24/7. I also think some of the best doctors are the best because they skip the hard issues… read more

How Can I Help His Transition From Bus To Home Less Difficult?

How Can I Help His Transition From Bus To Home Less Difficult?

So for the past few weeks my son has been coming home from school and the second he gets in the house all hell breaks loose. Seriously it's like Jekyll and Hyde. I got him off the bus and he was happy and I was asking him about his day. When we got inside the door, his 2 year old sister came up to him and said "hey, we're watching Frosty!" He yelled and pushed her and screamed "No, don't talk to me!!". So I took him to his room and told him to hang his coat up and he threw a major fit and… read more

His new thing... doesn't matter what the reward is... he says, I don't want it anyway... I don't need it anyway... is this what they call Tween Hood. I was finally going to take away his xbox today and he finally went and got dressed... of course he had to make farty noises...wage his butt at me... make funny faces first... my blood pressure luckily didn't blow... the problem is... if you take away his xbox or computer... that means there will be a physical fight because because he will… read more
