My son has been Diagnosied with autism/aspergers. It was so bad that I could not work and had to be avaiable to the school at all times because he would be violent and throw chairs, desk, rip things off the walls, and I was the only one that he would calm down for. At home we would do the same thing when he didn't get his way. I would spank that didn't work, and I would yell that didn't work and then a stopped resonding to him and that worked. All of this has happened even this summer but all of a sudden my son has stopped 99% of the problems. we are a month into school and I have only received 2 phone calls but didn't have to go down to the school. Last year he was so out of control and could be set off with the littlest thing such as moving his desk he would not change seats, he would still go to his old desk and sit down and would refuse to move. He didn't take change very well. This year he is changing class room and is happy and excited about it. I see a BIG change in him and was wondering is this something that they just snap out of one day? I have been dealing with this for 6 years now (son is 10) and I would love to have a job again and not worry about if he is going to flip out at school. I would love for him to be "normal"
