4 Year Old Son Pinching And Biting

4 Year Old Son Pinching And Biting

My son is 4 years old. He was diagnosed with ASD at 2 and is still non-verbal. He has always been very sweet and gentle and happy. There was a little bit of mild biting a couple years ago when he was teething, but that stopped. He also used to pinch a little bit, but it was only once in a while and all we had to say was “safe hands” and he would stop. A couple weeks ago he starting pinching his mother on a regular basis. Always when she would either tell him it was time to… read more

Why Won’t My Son Get My Attention Before Speaking To Me?

Why Won’t My Son Get My Attention Before Speaking To Me?

This has always been a challenge for my guy. He just starts talking or asking a question. This is a problem if I’m talking to someone else, or if I’m not facing him. When he was younger he would talk “at” me from other rooms of the house. I wish I could teach him to first say, “Mom” or touch my arm before he started talking. Sometimes it makes me feel like a poorly treated waitress in a restaurant. I know autistic people don’t engage in rude behavior… read more

Teaching Stranger Danger

Teaching Stranger Danger

Today at the playground, my 3 year old walked right up to a man who was across the playground with his son nearby on a slide. My dd is super friendly but sort of lacks that innate caution with strangers. She walked right up to him saying "Hello!", even sitting beside him on the bench before I called her back. Of course, I want her to be friendly, but how do you teach stranger danger awareness to ASD kiddos? I told her "I love that you wanted to say 'hi', but next time, first say 'Mom,… read more

Sleep Troubles With ASD?

Sleep Troubles With ASD?

I know trouble sleeping is a common problem for people with ASD. My 3 year old at least once a night (most nights) wakes up for a good 45 min anywhere from 1 am to 3 am. She doesn't cry but just starts loudly talking or singing to herself (let me tell you, a 3 year old singing "Naaaaaants igonyaaaaaaaama bagithi babaaaaa!" from the Lion King on Broadway at 3 am sounds like it'd be funny, but it's not. ).

Is there anything that may help? She is not too hot or cold, not twisted in her pjs… read more
