My son is in the process for a diagnosis of autism he has just been diagnosed with dyspraxia.
He is four years old and his latest thing is to hit people but his teacher even said today his not being nasty because he is laughing and joking about with the other child and when he does it it's as though he don't know how to deal with excitement or something has anyone else experienced this would love to hear experiences please he
You might find it useful to look at the NAS webpages on behaviour. The following link has sections on challenging behaviour and strategies for use at home and school. http://www.autism.org.uk/About/Behaviour
I hope you find something helpful.
