Im sorry, I asked the question about the 8yr old boy who needs proper discipline and I failed to say that he is diagnosed with aspergers and is on resperadone.
I am his aunt, his best friend and companion since birth, so I need to do whats right for him, how do I make sure he has the proper coping skills. He gets so angry, so fast.
I have tried to have talks with him when he is calm and I do know that he knows he is doing wrong but cant control himself at the time. I welcome any advice.

My son is 7 1/2 and on the same meds for his aspergers. I can "usually" tell when he is starting to go into sensory overload. I try to counter act it with weight. he wears a weighted vest at school. I made one for him at home as well or we use a corn sack or 2. you may want to try yoga with him. the stretching is very good for them as well as the deep breathing. My son benefits from "muscle work" it could be shoveling snow ( He loves it, I think because it does help him) he also likes to help Dad with his scrap business (he helps sort the metal) he also is very good at stacking the fire wood. When we go places I do the social story thing with him and explain to him what 'might' happen ie; loud noises, flashing lights crowds, etc. I always bring his head phones along just in case and keep ear plugs in my purse as back up. Chewing gum also helps my son on a smaller scale If you need more help message me
