I Will Did Survive!
We did 6 months of intense therapy with a child psychologist and a speech therapist before we moved over to Ghana. He has adjusted to school very well and the teachers who are also expats from England are also dealing with him extremely well. My current issue is his anger.
At the moment if the situations are not done exactly his way he has a meltdown. Extreme ear piercing screaming, intense crying, to falling down on the floor saying he is going to die.
I have tried to tell him to breathe but his meltdown is so intense that his body just can't listen to words. I then have asked him to go to his room to calm down.
He sometimes very rarely throws things across the room, but does not physically hurt anyone. As I have two younger boys ages 1 and 3 I still need to be aware of their safety.
He throws all blankets off the bed which doesn't bother me and then hides under them. Today I waited 10 minutes then went upstairs to talk to him, but he then started again with the extreme crying and screaming at me. It took him over an hour to calm down fully.
The situation arose as the nanny and I were helping him to make muffins and the nanny put a spoonful of the mixture into the muffin tin.
I am requesting your help on ways to calm him down in a manner that is acceptable. I am finding his resistance at the moment is a lot with me and his father.
I have structures in place by visual laminated pictures of how the morning is run and the structure before bed. This works fine, but like I said when things aren't done exactly his way, he can have an outburst in a flash.
Please give me some strategies on how I can better manage these meltdowns. I have found a qualified speech therapist who is from England which we go to once a week but as it is summer break we don't go back to August to assist with his pragmatic language.
Answer Problems related to stress and anxiety are common in kids with Aspergers high-functioning autism. In fact, this combination has been shown to be one of the most frequently observed comorbid symptoms in these children. They are often triggered by or result directly from environmental stressors, such as: This escalating sequence is similar to what has been described in kids with Aspergers, and seems to follow a three-stage cycle as described below.
Although non-Aspergers kids may recognize and react to the potential for behavioral outbursts early in the cycle, many kids and teenagers with Aspergers often endure the entire cycle, unaware that they are under stress i.
Because of the combination of innate stress and anxiety and the difficulty of kids with Aspergers to understand how they feel, it is important that those who work and live with them understand the cycle of tantrums, rage, and meltdowns, and the interventions that can be used to promote self-calming, self-management, and self-awareness as a means of preventing or decreasing the severity of behavior problems.
During this stage, kids and teenagers with Aspergers exhibit specific behavior changes that may not seem to be related directly to a meltdown.
The behaviors may seem minor. That is, kids with Aspergers may clear their throats, lower their voices, tense their muscles, tap their foot, grimace, or otherwise indicate general discontent.I have had a few good roles and know I am in a privileged position, but I had always hoped I would love what I do.
