Emmett, my 4 year old with Autism, seems to cycle through a few different stages before returning to where he started.
When he was younger, he was afraid to do anything on his own, especially go potty. As he got older, he moved past that and excited to do things all by himself.
As even more time has gone by, we find ourselves back where we began.
Emmett will not do anything by himself.
He won’t go potty by himself or even be on the second floor by himself.
I’m a special needs parent and don’t know anything else. Is any of this “normal”? Do you folks see this type of reversion back to older behaviors in your ASD kids?
It’s sometimes really hard to know what’s “normal” and what’s something to be concerned with.
When raising a child on the Autism spectrum, it seems as though every line is blurred and there are no definitives. It’s totally exhausting and confusing.
When is your ASD child, just being a “normal” kid?
