  • I'm in Canada and of no use to you as a local resource, I'm sorry...but I just wanted to say that I have three children on the spectrum, one of whom is extremely agressive....we've gotten a tonne of help over the years...it's not an easy life, but when you see progress and you see that child's true personality through it all...and when the positives start to outnumber the negatives it just makes it all worth it. I want to wish you the best of luck...and if you want, send me some specific examples of agressive behaviour and I'll see if I can give you ideas or some sort of help from my own experience....what age is your grandson...my son is 9......
