Gavin easily had one of the worst days of school yet this year. He lost it when his teacher offered to help him with something he was struggling with. He began screaming and punching himself in the face and head. They tried all the usual stuff to defuse him but nothing worked. He just esculated. They couldn’t even get him down to the office. Luckily no one besides himself was hurt and that was all self-inflicted.
Lizze talked to the teacher after school and told her the best thing to do is get Gavin away from the other kids and engage him as little as possible. If he hits himself let him go cause it’s all manipulation. The docs at Akron said if he’s not bleeding and he hasn’t passed out to let him go. He’s doing it to manipulate those involved and if they react he wins. They say he will stop before he hurts himself seriously. I don’t know if they are right but nothing else has worked.
We meet with the neurologist from the Cleveland Clinic tomorrow. We will see what he says. We need help and guidence cause we are lost and tired…..
