my son is 15 and has recently been diagnosed with Autism (about time) he is only just starting to show aggression towards teachers and most recently a friend of mine. He is very clingy and the older he has got, the more isolated I have become. I moved up north when he was 3 hoping that history wouldn't repeat itself as his father was a violent man, I now know he was Autistic but undiagnosed or supported. the problem I am finding is that still to this day, society has a very low tollerance towards people and young children with Autism and I have a feeling that it fuels his anger in some way. I am a single parent with no siblings for support and my parents are in their 70's. We've tried restbite but he refuses to go. Are there any suggestions that anyone can offer that will help me to get a life of my own?
