My five year old son is on the Spectrum, where exactly we are still waiting for, but the tics are unmistakable. I am slowly coming to terms with this fact, but where DH and I are really struggling is discipline. DS is on ADD medication as well to help him concentrate, as per the pediatrician.
How do you discipline a child when their brain works differently than yours?
What do you do when consistency is not enough?
How do you not go crazy when raising your voice is the ONLY thing that seems to get through to him?
I am a teacher by profession and I have tried everything I can think of.
