Hi, just wondering if anyone got practical advise for me. My 13 year old son has been diagnosed with ASD last week, though I'm very relieved that there is finally an explanation to his behaviour, we still have to deal with very foul langiage, screaming, throwing stuff, shoving etc. Quite disturbing for an adult, but even more so for my 9 year old son (he doesn't have ASD). I'm trying to think of a new way of dealing with his outburts (over very trivial things), but it just seems that I'm letting him get away with this outrages behaviour. He is refusing to talk about ASD, so no starting point. Any ideas,anybody? Has anybody got practical advise how to curb the outbursts without confrontations, but still imppose the boundaries?
Thanks for contributing to this discussion and offering advice. It's always useful to read the personal experiences of people who have been affected directly. Users who do not have ASD conditions themselves may not always be aware of the different ways that individuals can feel and respond.
It's clear, though, that you also have specific issues to raise with the NAS. This community isn't the best way to address these issues; it would be more appropriate to use the feedback form at the bottom of our contact us page, or to get in touch with the relevant department.
