Really struggling with my autistic grandson
Has anybody ever has anybody ever felt like they are going down a dead-end road? My grandson who I have raised since 8 months old was diagnosed with high functioning autism and ADHD. Since 3 years old has been kicked out of all the local Nursery schools and summer camps he has also been in every sport imaginable which didn't last long because of his aggressiveness and explosive meltdowns. I started off with the natural approach from the natural food store and took him off any foods that contain dyes and natural medicines for adhd/Autism. So my last resort was to Medicate. It is very frustrating because none of the medicines and he's tried them all has helped him. We have no problem with him at home it is only in school. He gets very aggressive and impulsive I have the principal calling me every single day. I moved him out of a gen ed class to a smaller one with an IEP. He is still doing the same behaviors. He has seen so many counselors ,coaches ,therapy sessions and no positive results. Miami if you are still on this thread how are things going now for your son? I also forgot to mention he's very defiant and hates to lose and if he loses it is the end of the world everything is competition!! Has anybody had any similar situations like me?
