My friend has a son that is autistic and I watch him from time to time to give her a break. He is 5 he can not talk, and tends to get violent when he is over stimulated and you try to redirect him. I want to be able to continue to help her, but I need a few tricks on how to stop him from getting so over whelmed in my house and how to stop him once he turns violent. I can not have him hurt my kids. Any tips would be great.Answer Question

My friends son is non-verbal but has a GREAT deal of understanding so in her case time out in a special booster with a strap works well for them. They use the 1-2-3 magic approach for the most part. I agree the discipline would need to be consistent so really see any results. I would find out what she does at home. As far as calming my son needs movement to calm, a trampoline or a swing. Her son neeeds pressure a good hug or to be wrapped tight in a blanket. It just varies form child to child depending on their needs and ability to comprehind diferent things.
