How Can I Encourage My 5 Year Old To Keep His Hands Out Of His Mouth?

How Can I Encourage My 5 Year Old To Keep His Hands Out Of His Mouth?

My 5 year old used to often put his hands in his mouth, mostly in new situations or when he was asked to do something challenging I think. But about 2 months ago, he started doing it all the time, regardless of the situation. His classmates don't want to be around him. His teacher is always telling him to wash his hands or put hand sanitizer on them. Any advice would be much appreciated.

4 Years Old Boy Humping Pillows And Gets Erection. Is This Normal?

4 Years Old Boy Humping Pillows And Gets Erection. Is This Normal?

I have 4 years old under the spectrum. Since he was two years old he is humping pillows whenever the opportunity comes a home. He does not do such thing at daycare, but whenever he comes home from daycare, he eats and then start humping pillow on the bed. I saw he has erection. Is this normal?. Usually he does that for over 30 minutes. I do really need to know if anybody saw something like this in the past.

My youngest son has short term memory loss and it's hard for him to remember anything. He is not on the spectrum, but was hoping someone else out there might have some information on how I can help my youngest more and helping him to remember things. Thanks

Climbing Jumping Off Of High Areas

Climbing Jumping Off Of High Areas

I have a 6 year old child who is constantly climbing on everything around the house and at school. He climbs up the handles of filing cabinets, stands looking down for a few seconds, then jumps down. All of my door knobs are broken because he shimmy’s up the door way (American ninja warrior style), stands on the door knob and jumps off of that. He used to be satisfied with climbing on and jumping off of the kitchen counter but now he’s starting to open up the cabinets and climb… read more

Should I Be Concerned If There Seems To Be A Steady Increase Of Stimming Activity Where There Was Little To No Activity A Year Ago?

Should I Be Concerned If There Seems To Be A Steady Increase Of Stimming Activity Where There Was Little To No Activity A Year Ago?

At first it started with "jumping on her toes"
then "jumping on her toes while looking up with only her eyes"
then "jumping on her toes while looking up with her mouth open (like an O)"
to now "jumping on her toes while looking up...mouth open... & arms down to side moving all her fingers really fast." Should I be concerned... is this a "normal" progression??

Am I Being To Cautious With My Youngest 15 Months

I feel as if I might be seeing things and over analyzing them because of my other children and because of working 1 to 1 with children who have disabilities. My youngest whose 15 months has had a complete personality change and has regressed she is no longer talking... She does not engage she never seems happy unless she is watching phineas and ferb. She just wonders around humming when anyone says her name she will not even acknowledge them and if she does its… read more

How Can I Distract My Son From His Constant Jumping??

How Can I Distract My Son From His Constant Jumping??

My 2.5 year old jumps from the second he wakes up to the second he falls asleep after jumping in his crib. I’ve tried distracting with games/snacks and it works for a few minutes but then it’s right back to the jumping. It makes it very difficult at daycare & on play dates as well as trying to get his newborn brother to sleep as our house is very unsoundproof & the jumping shakes the whole house! Is there anyway to replace his jumping with a less… read more
