My son hyperventilates. Anybody had any similar experience?
Yes, there wasn't much I could do but breath into his face to keep him from holding his breath. It would change his respiration enough to pull him out of his tantrum. I also used a bike helmet on him… read more
My son has this new habit of holding salvia in his mouth for periods of time! I was wondering have anyone else experienced this situation? And if so what did you do to resolve the situation?
My kid was in an inclusive program (general ed) and got pulled out for services. Looking for something similar. Would love to get input from the parents. Thanks in advance!
My son has the same problem and I'm seeking help

My son has a habit of constantly licking his fingers and then “playing” with his saliva. I haven’t noticed him doing it in specific situations , it’s more of a constant thing throughout the day. Any tips on how to stop this behavior?

I have contacted home but his guardian is lost and desperate to change the behavior.
My cute son will hold his spit in his mouth until he throws up or is told to spit somewhere. He will hold it on the school bus, in the car up to 80 miles without swallowing. This is all new behavior for us. Any tips or advice is appreciated.
As most of you may have experienced, we have been dealing with sensory-seeking challenging behaviors for a very long time, they come and go and vary in topography. The current behavior my 13 year old engages in that has been going on for more than 2 years is playing with his saliva. I am a behavior analyst and I, along with his therapist have tried almost every recommended alternative such as oral aides (chew toys, chewing gum, wearing a mask, playing with corn starch, chia paste etc), spitting… read more
