HELP!!!!! I have a 14 year old son with Autism. His behavior is off the hook.  He stands on the table, yells, tears up his clothes, bangs on the table. He is verbal, and potty trained. How do I get this behavior under control.  It is almost as if he has regressed back into his childhood, only bigger.  any suggestions????? He has been through 5 respite care workers, they cannot handle him, gives new meaning to off the hook!!!!! OMG!!! I think I need a good viamin!

I think sometimes as our children get older the pressures of life start to effect them and they have no way of dealing with it. If he is verbal maybe some counseling could help. There has to be someone out there up for the challenge. Can you try and find out what is driving him so crazy? Could it be hormones? 

I am so sorry for both of you, not easy to have a teenager, harder to have a ASD teenage boy!  XO

Wow, sounds like puberty might be happening, its the right age. There is a website called Squag for kids with autism, maybe he could go on there and talk to some girls to get out some angst.

Does he have a counselor? Services at school? What works for them at school? Would you consider drug therapy?
