You will never truly understand why Children on the spectrum gets angry about certain things. I have stopped trying to change my Son's outburst
he somethings gets and look at "How to keep an out look on the red flags alerts before hand and try and manage those as they come up.
Its amazing how certain things, people and the list goes on. The child copes better if you as a parent look at issues from a different aspect
e.g. .. time management ..how long an visit to a place takes ...sometimes slowly in 10 minutes slots helps.
change of place....get out more with the children ,,,parks are great because if the child is super loud doesn't matter they are allow to make
lots of noise .Take snacks with you and try and get little time out breaks in between . Children love snack time !
Try a trip to the beach.....sand ,waves, smell of the sea, Children love to jump, run in the sand ,build things .
again snack time and a tent with some fold up chairs under shade time out ..great for you too !.
Have you tried some sort of Sport ? maybe roller blading if you have a ring near you can help. The thrill of speed on wheels sometimes helps
children on the Spectrum and they get tried afterwards ...resulting in a good night sleep...trust me i have tried that and it works !!!
Good for social interaction too for the child not so much their sister or brother but someone unknown to them. Special friend !!
Do more outdoor things, stay away from bright shopping centre's eco noise too busy moments ...sometimes children cannot cope
and find it too much resulting in getting angry ,upset wants to run away from the area. My son is now used to many places
as i tried over and over again till i found a system that works for him. Staying home isn't going to help ...makes the problem worst.
Also get the other children use to him when out and about and before you know ...he will clam down ....in his own way. The General Public
these days are more understanding to Children on the Spectrum ,,,you have to as a parent read the situation by looking around your community
and seeing what and where you can take your child ...if one place doesn't work then try another. We live in a wonderful time for children on the Spectrum
Why you ask ??? well we have the knowledge and support from other parents thanks to on line media as this one and from Medical research and OT< SPEECH
and so on services to help us as parents riding this life with a child on the Spec. Enjoy it ...stop yourself from looking from a negative side and turn it
into positive. It takes time ,not as quick as we would like it , but its worth it in the long run. Our Child on the Spectrum depends on us as ...A Captain
who steers the boat to clear waters ...if the choppy water come up lock down and wide the waves ....the calm waters will come back ...." enjoy
it and keep your head up high ....it take a strong minded mother to make a difference ...you are one super Mother !!! i am proud of you !!
one step at a time .....keep up the good work and try little changes and take notes ...buy your diary for notes ...make plans today. Take care and
keep me posted on the outcomes. Feel free to contact me if you would like to have a chat about it. I am here for you ! Kind Regards Skatergirl08
