He suffers from speech aprexia and also is behind with understanding. I have tried telling him when he does something wrong, but he just does not understand. He does not even seem to understand time out. Please do not say spank. I have tried spanking him a few times and I just want to cry. Please help!!

The time out technique does work if administered correctly and with patient grace and consistency! Being consistent is the key. My oldest was extremely strong willed, she didn't have speech apraxia nor was she behind in understanding, however, I have total empathy with your plight! It is heart wrenching and exhausting! Just be consistent, no matter how hard you want to give up, keep it up......time out does work if done right! Since your son has speech apraxia he may be more frustrated in his inability to communicate with you and lashes out. Have you tried doing sign language with him in conjunction with his speech therapy? I'm sending you a hug!

Using a place where the child sleeps as a place of punishment isn't correct. It needs to be a specific place - a chair - that is dedicated to discipline. It confuses the child that the the place of rest is also a place of grief is sending a confusing message to the child. It is a contradictory discipline message. I mean you no disrespect Anon 9:16!
