let me begin by saying I love my son very much. he is a great joy...that said today has been HORRIBLE. one change to his schedule and he goes nuts. screams, cries, hits and just does not behave at all. I feel like I cannot control the situation sometimes. he listens to my husband a lot more then me..I just want to pull out all of my hair :(  okay there is my vent. have a nice day :(

 :-( Sorry. How old is he?
Have you tried posting the daily routine on a poster, maybe with velcro so you can add in something if needed but he can actually see what to expect for the day?
My son is 8 (Asd, adhd, mod-severe mr, etc still testing for genetic conditions), routine isn't a huge issue for him... unless it's something big like if he's at school or home that day.

he is six. we are working on getting him onto a schedule. I am going to start working full time soon so that may really make things bad :/ he is in kindergarten. I tested him for genetics and he got it from me :( :( :(

 Don't be too hard on yourself, it takes time to get a strong routine as a family.

And what do you mean he got it from you? We're actually testing for genetic conditions outside of what he's already diagnosed with because there is so much more going on.

I supposedly have an off gene that can cause autism, next child I would have has a 25 percent chance of getting it. that's a good idea, I probably should have done that myself- and thank you

I totally understand.  I have a "foster daughter" that is 22 and has Autism.  Some days are very bad.  It is even worse when that one bad day leads to several bad days.  It is an emotional roller coaster for everyone involved.
