In Reply to: Anxious Shouting is this autistic symptom? posted by Sheila on June 28, 2000 at 17:52:33:

MY GRANDSON IS DIAGNOSED AS HIGH FUNCTIONING AUTISTIC. HE IS 4 YEARS OLD AND WAS VERY SOCIABLE, SUDDENLY REGRESSED AND HIS SCREAMING AND TANTRUMS WERE TERRIBLE. WE HAVE THEM UNDER CONTROL NOW, BUT IT TOOK ALMOST A YEAR WITH MUCH ATTENTION AND HARD WORK, DIFFERENT VITAMINS AND THE GFCF DIET. HE STILL HAS MOMENTS THAT HE STARTS TO SCREAM OR HYSTERICALLY SHOUT, BUT WE RUB HIS BACK AND ARMS OR HUG HIM TIGHT AND MASSAGE HIS BACK AND HEAD WHILE WE CALM HIM. PART OF THE PROBLEM IS THEIR FRUSTRATION THAT THEY CAN'T CONVEY TO YOU WHAT THEY WANT. OUR JACOB IS VERY AFFECTIONATE AND LOVING AND FRIENDLY, SO DON'T LET THAT FOOL YOU. JUST TRY TO CALM HIM AND SEE WHAT HE WANTS.IT IS VERY FRUSTRATING AND EMBARASSING FOR THE PARENT ALSO. I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MANY TIMES SOMEONE HAS COME UP TO ME AND SAID "YOU NEED TO GIVE THAT CHILD A SPANKING." (I WOULD BE VERY HAPPY IF THAT WAS ALL HE NEEDED.) GOOD LUCK
