Hi Jeanine,
My almost 8year old son is showing these behaviours. School teacher alerted her concerns and he was assessed via school counsellor using Achenbach and Connors assessments, we then saw a paediatrician and a paediatric occupational therapist. He also is showing some sensory processing difficulties and has very poor nutrition as he will only eat 6-8 different foods all bland and easy to eat and lacking in much nutritionally.
He is starting SOS Therapy for picky eaters and a program called Zones of Regulation with the OT and she will also observe him in the classroom.
He will also be seeing a psychologist once these other things get started.
And I probably need to drink more wine!!! It's heartbreaking watching is distress and feeling we have messed him up somehow but at least we have started ad will be able to support him.
I hope this helps,
S

Your son sounds like our 9 year old daughter. She has been diagnosed with ODD this week. She also has a poor appetite and only eats a very limited range of foods and bland at that.
It's hard getting them to cooperate with simple tasks and everything annoys her.

I'm interested in this SOS you talk about. We have seen a speech pathologist and they said it seems as though she may have sensory issues, but I don't think that's it. I think there's more too it.

Hi Guys, after some info on ODD. I have a 12 year old son and maybe the past 6 months he has given us absolute hell. Hes answering back, hurting his siblings, always causes arguments, doesn't respond well to things asked of him, angry, destructive, swears, destroys things and has no care for authority with parents. We have a councilor we see once a week which is great, i guess more for me to keep me sane. She has referred my son to the RCH at travencore to be assessed. Im really struggling with him at the moment and so are the other kids. Im constantly angry and upset, and get to the point where i just ignore him as i cant deal with whats going on. His grades are really poor at school and he doesn't even care. Can anyone give me some sort of advice as what to do for now before i loose my mind. Thank you

Well I don't have any advice as such yet but am sharing my experience in the hope that someone will have some suggestions. My 8.5 year old Grandson who lives with his Mum and I is on the spectrum and also has odd and possible adhd. He is in and autism specific school but will be transitioning to mainstream at some stage in the near future. However, his behaviour is the biggest obstacle in the process. He has OT, speech therapy and music therapy every week and is currently doing an anxiety program at Macquarie Uni in Sydney. There are no quick fixes and he has been doing most of these regular therapies since he was 4 years old. I think it's time to find and engage a professional behavioural specialist/psychologist to help us get through to the next step but I don't know if this is the correct line of thinking. Yes he displays irrational anger at all things and situations that annoy him, refuses to do anything that he doesn't want to do, argues with adults and is verbally abusive when he can't get his own way. Other than that he is a very charming little guy with a good sense of humour when he is in a good mood. Any ideas? What is RCH?

Hi 3of boys
Have you taken your Son to a Clinical psychologist ?If not you need to find a really 
good Paediatrician who then can work beside the psychologist to help manage 
his behaviour and give you the skills to cope , work  with the Child.
Every Child is different of course  you might need to change ways of dealing with 
certain behaviour's and what triggers them off. Keep a diary ,note day ,time and where
what the Child has done for the day. Sometimes you will see a pattern forming ,so next time 
they start again you are ready. Not all OT<SPEECH ABA Therapy works with the Child ,
you might have to change one or the other (meaning the provider) as not all are TOP OF THEIR 
CLASS ,there are some that are not with it so to speak. Shop again and google, check out 
feedback ,if one doesn't work then try another!. Once you get your team together ,then 
one works with the other and your input will make a difference. TEAM WORK is the key 
and read, read as much written studies of Parents who have in the past gone through what you 
are going through now. 
Kind Regards Skatergirl08

Hi IiIjess069,
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 Smile xx
