My son bangs his head when he is upset or when I leave the room he has bad separation anxiety right now and is 13 months old, this started right around 10 months old- does anyone have any advice or is going through something similar?

  • Is he up with all his milestones? My toddler started doing this early on.. He still does it. When he gets very mad, he bangs his head and screams. He was behind on most milestones also such as talking. The doctors are currently testing him for autism and Asperger's Syndrome.

  • my autistic son did this too out of frustration over not being able to express himself.

  • Yep! My son has Asperger's Syndrome, a form of Autism, and that's exactly how we started noticing the major issues. Good Luck, and just try to be very patient.

  • my little sister used to do this and she would hold her breath until she passed out the doctors said to just walk away because if they dont get a reaction out of you then they will stop doing it, i would definetly keep checking on them just dont let them see you, and my sister didnt have any form of autisim so dont automatically assume thatw what it is.
