MOST HELPFUL POSTS
My son is 17 and is 6'8" tall. He has many issues with being touched. He has curbed his explosive a lot over his life, but he still has triggers.
I'm watching the New York footage of a large man's death today. I realize the gestures he was making, which the police called resisting arrest, were very similar to gestures my son would make when touched. If that gesture didn't remove his perceived threat he would get violent and possibly arrested or dead.
This man did not have any kind of neuro-disorder but was killed because of his size and his behavior.
I don't know how to teach my boy to de-sensitize when in public
