Posts Tagged ‘Autism and Stress’
Today I wanted to share our little Easter story with you all but I think I will save that for tomorrow. I got great news today well maybe not great but hey at least it’s a start right.
Today I took Dakota to the Doctors for his routine med check. We talked about the last couple weeks and how aggressive Dakota has been. I told him about the melt downs as well as the punching, throwing things, biting, screaming and yelling. I also told him that last week while he was off he was good as gold. Don’t get me wrong he wasn’t perfect but he was a lot calmer and relaxed.
No child should ever have to suffer becasue they have anxiety and stress. What’s really important is knowing and understand the signs of stress as well as things that can help accomodate them to feel less stressed.
Children with autism respond to stress in the same way as anybody else. The only difference is that stress is a greater problem for students with autism because they experience severe stress far more frequently then what most people do and they are not able to deal with stress as effectively.The reason for this is they have fewer resources in dealing with stress as they may not recognize it.
