Need advice, and so confused :(...
Hi, so my 6yo was having many many episodes of violence. Some of you might remember from previous posts. I was so lost I didn't know what to do anymore. I contacted professionals only to be turned down because he was 'too violent' for behavioral therapy. Had to be put on a 10 month waiting list for a behavioral specialty clinic a couple hours away from where I live and we are still waiting. Much of the actual physical violence started around September and it escalated, and escalated. Nothing seemed to be working.
AND THEN... last Wednesday was his last day of school. He came home very happy and no problems at all. Only minimal problems with hitting since then as well. It's like a switch flipped off the second school got out, either that or he has been blaming me for making him go there or something. Not really sure. Anyone have experience w/ this type of thing? Thinking maybe I should request he be moved to a lower functioning classroom at school, as it's possible he is being overstimulated.
While I am glad the behaviors appear to have all but disappeared, I am not sure what exactly is going on here. I'm scratching my head on this one... any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
