Another frustrating day

Thursday, May 14, 2009

As some of you may know, I work in the public school system with an autistic young man. He has become increasingly frustrated as of late and instead of just hitting and scratching when someone gets too close, he is now charging after people. My fingers are now "buddy taped" together after blocking a punch this morning. I love this boy to death but his behaviors are leaving me in "fight or flight" mode all day long. He is not the only "highly volatile" student in our room. We have 3 others plus other students that come in for different classes throughout the day. He is low functioning but capable of learning to some degree. It is my responsibility to instill this knowledge in him. I know I can't change any of this but needed to vent. Thanks for your time...
