    Default Aspergers and ODD

    Master 6 has been diagnosed with Aspergers and ODD and another behavioral problem yet to have a
    "name".

    For those of you as parents or carers of children with these conditions, how do YOU manage the condition?

    Behavior, diet, hypnosis, chiro, psychologist, routine, etc

    Aspergers is part of a spectrum disorder so it's really hard to give advice because every child is different and responds differently based on their behaviors or needs.

    Same with ODD really. What works for one child may not work for another

    Maybe you could give some more info about your DS?

    Thx.

    This is a list his paed found very helpful.... Maybe this might shed some light on my ds for anyone that might have info for me?

    Very short fuse - gets super angry at one comment, normally something non-attacking eg Phoenyx, please don't go in the kitchen etc
    Stiffens limbs when angry
    Hard to calm down when upset - but when he calms down, its instanious eg when bribed with something he is happy with
    Shouts & Roars when agitated
    Knocks things off benches for no reason
    Spits
    Deliberatly annoys siblings - will set out to upset for no reason at all, will seek someone out to trip over, hit etc
    Will destroy siblings projects eg if someone is drawing a picture, he will walk over and step on it, rip it or crunch it up
    Behaves well when occupied with laptop, ipad or ipod
    Bed Wetting
    Blinking
    Uncontrollable Angry
    Better on own
    Behaviour
    Tip drink / food out
    Seat belt off in car
    Shrugs off getting hurt or getting in trouble
    Blocks things out so they don’t exsist
    Hates noise – a lot! Covers ears, screams, runs away from it. Crowds.
    Disruption in day – unsettled and angry
    “ears turned on?” “look at my eyes and listen” – don’t know what you say some things until you repeat it - then blinking starts
    says v instead of b.
    doesn’t recognize letters and numbers without alot of prompting.
    “don’t know” about everything
    wild child

    At least 2 years – increasing during the time

    I'm not much help just wanted to say never give up on them, ever. My husbands younger brother has this and he is quite an isolated adult we are still trying to help him whereas his mum gave up on him many years ago it's quite sad. Support and encouragement go a long way.

    Thanks.. We are trying really hard but it's sadly getting to a stage where
    I can't foresee myself coping long term with his behavior. I also worry about his feelings if he is the one with the problem iykwim.
    The psych said we are doing all he right things but it doesn't feel like it.
    They are also going to test for ADHD now too.
