My son hits and bumps into other kids while in line at school
(Copperas Cove, TX, USA)
My 9 yr old son has been getting in trouble for hitting other children and kicking and bumping into them in line at school. He has been diagnosed already with SPD and I've explained to the school that he has this. I have suggested the school keep him close to the teacher while in line, as well as give him something somewhat heavy to hold onto or a task to do.
However, yesterday he got in trouble for doing it again. I realize it was Monday and this kind of behavior only happens usually while in transition or if he is overstimulated at lunch time or at recess.
Can you offer any other advice for me on how to help him in this situation? He is not in physical therapy because the wait time to get in here is over a year long. I'm desperate to help him and get any suggestions and advice I can. Thank you!
