ASC meltdowns -avoidance
Hi, my son n has ASC/ Aspergers is 9 and an extrovert in a mainstream school. He has reduced TA support in his new setting and since the Summer/starting his new Middle school his melt downs have become more frequent and he is aggressive with them- tries to hit out. Always very apologetic and remorseful afterwards. How best is it we deal with these episodes and how can we help him to not get to the state where he wants to be physically agressive. we are approaching AWM and trying to see a Paediatrician at present. Aware he could be going through changes at his age but he looks like a 12 year old with the mind and sometimes behaviour of a 7-9 -12 year old. I would appreciate any advice.
