An outburst like that is the last step of his ultimate frustration and he does it only when all other avenues of communication fail him.
He used the back of his hand to nudge the iPad back to me. It was his way of saying, “Get out here with that garbage.”
That guilt was because I was still learning the difference between hoping and needing. I was hoping my son would speak. As I’ve come to realize though, I didn’t need it.
Sensory issues or stimulation have nothing to do with it. This was my kid wanting what he wanted and whining until he got it.
My son may have never said a word to me, but we have spoken in so many more ways than that.
Those who treat him like he’s capable of anything will get the best him he can be.
