My 6 yr old son with CP & global delay has been throwing severe tantrums & attacking other students in his class. He actually injured another child today! He is non-verbal and functions at an 18-24 month level, although he seems to understand a lot more than he can express. Until last September he has been fine with school, but this year he totally does not want to be there. His behaviors have been escalating. He has not had any changes at school (same teachers, aids, & classmates for the 3rd yr in a row), so I don't think there are any adjustment issues. We have tried lots of things at home & school to try & help the situation, but it's only getting worse! He's not really exhibiting these behaviors at home. Any suggestions or ideas??? It's to the point where his principal is considering suspending him, but I believe he'd see that as a reward & behave even worse when he returned! Help!
