I am mom to Jared who is 5 1/2 and dx with mild-Aspergers, SI, and auditory processing issues. He was just released from his OT last month and he continues to see a psych for play therapy (to help with his anxiety/control issues), a SLP, and he attends a social skills group.
He'll be in a typical kindergarten in the fall and I'm trying to get him an aide. I've got a big fight infront of me.
We've been going through a tough time since school has ended and I'm hoping once he gets settled into his camp routine that he'll do a little better.
It's the impulse control thing that's the worst. He does what he wants to do and can't register when kids tell him 'no'. We were at a neighbors house and some of the kids were in the sprinkler. He was joining in with everyone and playing pretty well until he saw the water guns. He picked it up and kept squirting everyone even though the kids all told him no. Then when I tried to take it away it was the typical aggressive outburst. I was so embarrassed. He has a hard time keeping his hands to himself as well. Everytime we go somewhere I always review the rules about keeping his hands to himself and still no luck.
Do they ever outgrow this?
