Mother in need of HELP
19 yr. old PDD-autistic boy screaming every time anyone talks!! Started small and escalated quickly to out of control. Working with local agencies. Of course there is a waiting list for everything!! Due to his age, there aren't alot of services in our area. Seen psychiatrist who said he could sedate him? This is NOT what we are looking for!!
Looking for help of things we could try to calm him. I realize we should be utilizing OT and other professionals? But I need help in the short term. I'm terrified that if I can't find something to soothe him somewhat I will lose me job. I have had to leave work or call into work several days over the past month due to increased problems with care givers in my home. My family is providing care over the summer but they simply can't handle him. I would quit my job tomorrow and do whatever I needed to help him. I simply don't know what to do?
Any ideas would be appreciated. Prayers for SOMEONE to get him into some type of therapy program! Please understand 3 months ago these behaviors were not present! We have been to famy Dr. Twice and neurologist and 2 visits to an autism HUB in our area! He was currently not in therapy because they were not indicated anymore. Nothing has changed with his health other than puberty which I know can cause all sorts of issues with these kids. I just need some soothing ideas!! Please help!!
