I am not 100% sure he is on the spectrum, but his speech is delayed (can use 2 to 3 word sentences spontaneously, and expresses his needs very well, but has a hard time with functional language) although he loves the park, swimming, books and colouring, he doesn't play with toys by himself properly. H is very social with his family but not his peers, his eye contact is only so so,, and he is very
he has been so bad lately!
He bangs on stuff hard like he is drumming (sometimes on me!) constantly goes through drawers, unplugs stuff, tries to remove vents, takes doorknobs off closets, climbs stuff, chases the cat, throws crayons down the vents, screams, yells, demands, freaks out and cries whenever he doesn't get his way. He doesnt full on tantrum, just cries and stomps. It passes quickly. Unless I or his dad are fully engaging him in something, like bubbles, or going to the park, or swimming, colouring, he is a reckless crazy hyper kid to the extreme. It's constant. Im looking for advice! He isn't violent or aggressive, jut hyper!
I have no idea if this is due to his delays or he is just a bratty defiant 3 year old and I was wondering if some of the ASD moms could weigh in discipline approaches. Or anyone?
