I need some serious advice. Jamesen (the one with asperger's) use to get so mad at Marcus that he would grab him around the neck and choke him. I tried everything I could think of to get him to stop and nothing seemed to work until one day, he just stopped doing it. Since I had my baby 6 weeks ago, it's started again. Jamesen is the same size as Marcus despite being 2 years younger and I'm afraid that if they get into a fight at night (they share a room) that something bad could happen. I've had nightmares of waking up to find Marcus not breathing. Can you give me some ideas on how to make him stop?
I'm no expert but this works for my son who has aggressive tendencies towards his sister.
Maybe teach him "Gentle Hands" and tell him that is not okay. Have him do the sign for gentle hands and make sure you explain that is not okay and it hurts Marcus.. Maybe look into some type of sensory brake for him.. My son likes rough play.. He likes to be hung upside down, wrestling or something he has to work to do.. Like pushing a shopping cart with something heavy inside it.. This helps him with exerting some energy.
A.J is due to start IBI therapy in a week. We are going to be working with him being aggressive towards his sister.. The random hair pulling, crab pinches,.. I'll PM you techniques we are working on if you want.. Maybe it can help you as well..
