Hi im really in need of advice or well anything my son is 9 and is boarder line for aspbgers (sp) i know we have had alot going on but he dont show emotion to anything but will tell you if something is boring.We knew he had a problem at about 9 months old and was sent right into early intervention and really dont have very good social skills. He only eats certian foods and wont try anything else but is getting bored of the same food because he started throwing his lunch out at school. he is in a normal class with regular kids and is in the 4th grade. I had my 4th child this year wich resulted in a section and then he had an allery to to wood pellets so we had to switch rooms around. Then just a couple days ago my grandma passed away im not sure if any of this had any affect on him but he is not willing to take help from anyone.chooses to guess on his school work and he has always been a very smart kid. but is really shutting down i dont know what to do i cant really punish him becaause he does that himself. i try talking and he just says he dont care. im at a loss on how to handel this please somone help
Have you spoken with his school counsolers and teachers? At 4th grade I would suggest looking into having him see a psychologist. It has helped many older children! Is he sensory seeking at all? Maybe doing some sensory activities with him before hand may help him focus. If you're on facebook SPDconnect is a great resource for sensory activities. Hugs momma!
