Hello. I have a 5 year old daughter who has Down syndrome. Lately she has been acting out. A lot. She refuses to get dressed for school, go to bed, she runs from us and yesterday ran right into the street. She challenges just about everything we try to get her to do. I have tried time out ( which usually ends with one of us holding her in the chair), yelling taking away something she likes, redirection, and even sitting her down and trying to explain why she should not act a certain way. She responds to us by spitting on us. Any ideas?
