Hello, my DS will be 3 in october, and a few months ago started OT once a week for SPD. He is sensory seeking, and has a bit of tactile issues. I am still struggling with him being so aggressive and angry. I do childcare out of my home, and has been since he was born, and his interaction with the other kids is not appropriate! He hit them, and fights over the smallest things. Everything I do with him is a fight. Just a few days ago we took his paci away, but when he did have it he would have that and his blanket and lay on the floor and roll back and forth. I don't know if it is a soothing thing or what. When he eats he smacks his head or his ears, I am not sure why he does this. He won't make eye contact. He speaks great, he is very smart, he will have a conversation with me. He does have trouble getting sentences out, he will repeat himself a few times before he actually gets the sentence out. Does this sound anything like Aspergers? He is going to see a developmental pedi soon to get evaluated, I just wanted to get some opinions, and maybe see if anyone had any suggestions on how to deal with his aggression and anger! Thanks!
