Hi, Ladies! My son is in an all day school. With autistic support classes in the morning and regular kindergarten in the afternoon. He has not bitten very often at home and then it was minor. It seemed to be out of fustration. His diagnosis is mild autism with speech delay at this time. He just turned 7 and is usually happy and very creative. His a. s. teacher called to tell me that he wanted something another boy in his class had. When he didn't get it, he just bit him. When approached he was apologetic. They had to go to the nurse to be checked, the principal talked to him and he was sat on the naughty spot. He has lately been trying to keep things he wants or has already to himself. Yesterday he was taking things off of his little sister when she picked them up. How would you mom's help to teach him not to bite out of fustration? At school or home. Thanks!
