    Default In desperate need of help!

    My DD is 6.5yrs old. She is diagnosed ASD, ADHD, ODD, OCD. She is in part main******, part special ed unit Yr 1.
    DD see's speech, ot, psych, behaviour therapist.


    DSS is 4. He is neurotypical and not at all violent.

    DD is constantly screaming, hitting, bitting, pinching and DSS wears the brunt of it. This morning he copped a massive bite on his back. Broken skin and an instant bruise. :'( We dont know what else to do short of museling her!!!!!!

    We've done the over the top reaction to try and shock the behaviour out of her, time out, taking things off her, ignoring.....

    Im lost. we are out of ideas and its beyond a joke. DSS cannot keep being physically abused by her, but how to stop it??????????

    At the moment, she's in her room yelling at me that she wont get dressed for school.

    I'm sorry I have no idea.

    Dd is ASD, ODD and ADD and time out works really well here. But it's one warning and she is there every time. She's 8 so gets 8mins time doesn't start until she stoops crying.

    When we are going through a rap bad patch, she loses tv, animals and everything fun.

    Thanks ladies. DD gets time out too, with no leniency and no exceptions. Its more for all of our safety than anything but its not detering her behaviour

    Is this possibly a jealousy thing? After having been an only child for so long, and not having to share her space (or her mum) she now does have to, and is struggling with that?
    It doesn't make her behaviour acceptable but possibly more understandable?
