Tom has started taking BuSpar just this week for his severe outbursts which happen mostly at school.

Heather, have they done an FBA on him? He should have one to determine where his triggers are regarding behavior.

He is legally entitled to have one done since his behaviors affect his education and the education of others. And this should be done by a behaviorist who is qualified as an Autism Expert.

You can also request the staff be specially trained by an Autism Expert. I'm sure they must have someone in the district who qualifies.

Clearly they don't get it.

oh lord they really don't get it sometimes, do they? I had to go talk to Euan's teacher when I found out that when he had a flappy fit and refused to work in a group, they'd send him to the library to read on his own as a 'punishment', D'oh!!!!! It doesn't take someone with euan's IQ to work out that he's getting *exactly* what he wants there! His therapist's jaw dropped when I told her.

You have my sympathy!
