We have noticed within the past couple of months our (9 year old) Aspie son is sneaking food. He has a healthy appetite and always finishes his meals. We noticed he was sneaking candy and other sweets. He is not allowed in the kitchen without permission for this reason. Last week he grabbed a handful of little smokies at a Halloween party and snuck to a corner to eat them. I found a partially eaten granola bar under his pillow last week. I constantly find various wrappers in his laundry. Today he… read more
My 10 year old son seems to be getting more aggressive these days. not in the violent sense but much more emotional. his stemming (i think that's the spelling)has also increased too. What type of therapy or intervention would help me help him in both areas. Especially the emotional part. He has a speech delay, which i am sure is as frustrating to him as it is to me trying to understand what is going on.
How do you stop your Autistic child from stealing money and possibly bigger items? Does anyone have a solution or some way to handle this?
Takes things that aren't hers. Especially drawn to electronics. No remorse.
Not much is meaningful to her so how do I give consequences?
Stealing really getting worse...
My 13 yeard old who is high functioning ASD lies about everything and is stealing things from family. He steals food, candy and other items. We have tried everything to get the behavior to stop anyone have an ideas we are at a loss.
Does anyone have any idea on how to stop an autistic child from stealing food? My daughter steals food (mostly sweets) it's not that I don't feed her or even allow her to have the items that she takes but she continues to take them without asking and hides to eat it. I've tried putting it where she shouldn't be able to get it but she finds a way. I dont by sweets often they are truly a treat but if I cant find away to stop the sneaking then we will become a treat free zone.

My son is about to start ABA soon and is currently in Daycare. Our situation requires both of us to work. He is not going to be staying at the current day care because it is truly tough for them to deal with him (transition issues, demanding, social, sensory, etc).
Are they any day care in the Ashburn,Sterling areas that cater to 2-2.5 years old on the ASD spectrum? We're trying to avoid homeware (being alone with a provider worries us). Any recommendations would… read more
Recently my son has taken up stealing (money, toys, etc). I am concerned because this behavior is not typical for him. His explaination was that we take things from him (as punishment) so he should take our things. I don't know what to do so that he understands that is not at all okay.
