As you know that autistic children can’t cope with change. Bearing this in mind there is always going to come a time when this is inevitable, the example in question, changing years at school.
Perkie has gone off the rails to say the least, this so unlike him. Poor lad has had to cope with a change of teacher, classroom and class mates, now this would be enough for any child but a child on the ASD spectrum its like his world has ended. He has become so violent, thinks nothing of putting his hands round your throat, kicking and lashing out. Very aggressive, I was really worried the other day that he would hurt Little Gnome. I have had to let him do his own thing to a certain degree, otherwise I am frightened he is going to hurt someone or himself.
I want to help Perkie cope at school but i don’t know how to , I have gone through all the pictures of his new class, teachers. children etc, but I don’t believe this is helping. I tried to talking to the teachers and they are helping a much as possible. Unfortunately this is a waiting game, yet another quirk of autism
