Hi, does anyone know how to teach coping skills to a child with sensory integration disorder, and a tenitive dx of aspergers? She is becoming extremely defient at home. There has been some changes, ex: Nana went back to work, we started homeschooling, and attend co-op. We tried preschool, but she could not handle it due to the seperation anxiety. We are happy to be homeschooling =) anyway, the behavior problems are getting worse by the day. She yells, talks back, kicks, does anything possible to get attention even if it's negitive. How can I help her? She does not want any independence that I have heard was "typical" for other children her age that are learning a sense of self, if that makes sense. We still co-sleep, practice gentle disipline, but nothing is helping. We've been using time outs, and time in's..and they are useless. She doesn't care, she is being completely defient. Any imput would be awesome.
