Autism Behavios. What we have done/do to help our son.

With behaviors and Autistic children in general.. The following are somethings that I have learned through out the years that have helped us and my son cope and stop unsavory behaviors. 1.) Weighted vests come in really handy to help calm down ASD Kids. Think of it as giving them a hug. It's for security. It always helped calm our son down. 2.) Also, ever think of using a sock to calm down your child? Very simple and ready at hand. Just place a longer (crew) sock over your childs hand..

How do I get my child tested for autisic spectrum disorder

I have asked my doctor for a referral to have my child tested for autism. He has already been diagnosed with ADHD. He has told me to ask the school for a referral is this the case. I may be being sceptical but at the present time Consultant has to me to ask the school for a CAF for extra support and they say they dont do it. Please help I just seem to be going round in circles.
