  • Mine is 17 now but he had pretty bad ones between Id say 9-14 yrs old. We did behavior therapy and family therapy and it helped so much I cant even explain.

  • Is your child in therapy? Sounds like the PP knows her stuff.

  • No... have you asked in one of the support groups on here?

  • Yep!!!! My son (at that age- he is now almost 15) would have horrible meltdowns, very moody.... what really helped him was seeing a therapist - for behavioral issues, and anger issues, and he was also placed on meds. Since then he has made great progress, he is learning to control his anger, and the meltdowns have not been as frequent or as bad. So that might be something to consider for your child--- if you have not already tried it.

  • autism paired with raging hormones ehm yeah not pretty. I would probably try to increase therapy time and have him put on meds to mellow him out for the time being, it should get better once he is out of full on puberty which messes with the most neuro typical boys. Imagine how hard puberty was then imagine going through all those changes when you don't do change well and can't express yourself...

  • Yes my son has aspergers and is 13! It isn't fun is it! Just keep at it, most of it is hormones like any other child and i constantly remind myself of this!
