many autistic children behave this way. Asperger’s kiddos are very smart but have very poor social skills. sometimes they also have sensitivity.
my son for a long time, would only take a bath in cold water, and sometimes it’s situational. for example, this shirt is ok to wear today but tomorrow it’s “itchy”. many times the anger or fits are do to a lack of coping skills.
maybe it was too loud, or she didn’t like the words you were using. sometimes they can’t talk about it so it becomes a fit. sometimes they don’t even know.
my son would be petting our dog then punching him for no reason. there are many good sites for asd (autism spectrum disorders). if i can help at all please do no hesitate to contact me.
i am a professional as well as a parent of as apsy. 😉 april

She is not unconfortable when she has a fit it usually occurs because we do not do what she wants when she wants it done. When she threw her container of chocolate milk she wanted her dad to turn and look at her right now and he was driving and could not turn.I was speaking to my husband and she wanted us to stop talking and when we did not she threw the milk container.
The time she almost killed her kitty she was angry because I would not go to the store and buy her a toy.
The kitty survived and today they are inseperable. She has really good days and really bad days and nothing in the middle. Either all good or all bad.
The ritalin helps her some but when the patch is close to being changed she gets worse and right after I put a new one on she is bad. It is about a two hour span and then she evens out in her moods again. Her therapist says she hates to be touched and is doing touch therapy wiith her now.
Do autistic children behave this way? What causes autism?
