We knew this would eventually happen

      2 Comments on We knew this would eventually happen

We received a call last night from Lizze’s Mom.  Apparently, Gavin completely freaked out on them.  He was playing Sonic on his tablet and must’ve gotten frustrated or something. 

Her Mom said it was the worst they’d seen.

Lizze spoke with her Mom to figure out if anything needs to be done. It sounds like they handled this really well and are even taking his tablet, at least for now.

The problem here is two fold. 

The tantrum itself is obviously a behavioral issue and a safety issue.  However, this is also a potential life threat for Gavin because his rage could trigger another autonomic crisis.

I don’t know what to do.  Thankfully, they are working with a counselor type person from DD that is there to assist in such matters.

We also have a wraparound meeting in the morning. I have no idea what we are going to discuss but to be perfectly honest, I’m not looking forward to it. 

Lizze is in a bad place Elliott is really sick and Emmett is well……Emmett.

Actually, I think one of the things we are going to discuss is what to do with Gavin over the summer. I don’t hold out much hope that we’ll have many options, but we have to at least try to figure something out. 

I’ll update you all, after the meeting is over.

As an Autism parent, do you think you've become so used to the high levels of stress in your daily life that you've normalized it or no longer realize it's there?
