Re: downs syndrome behaviour problems

How old is the child? My daughter, age 10, has periods of aggressiveness like that. We have to figure out what is really important to her and withdraw that item or privilege. Making her miss outside play may not be a big deal to her, but making her delay snack time or taking away a favorite item may be a big deal. Also, you may want to try to imagine what may be motivating her to hit. Is she jealous because no one is playing with her or is she irritated about being babied? We've had both of these problems through the years and had to work on the root causes.

Re: downs syndrome behaviour problems

My son, age 8, also has sporadic agressiveness at recess. We've not really gotten it figured out yet, what causes it - Completely - but there are reasons. I feel that it is partly due to his desire to be "one of the guys" ..... he sees rough play, and not realizing his own strenght, is too rough. To try to squelch this behavior - we are trying a variety of different things - not just "loosing" recess. Delaying snack time, making him apologize to the "victim", placing a "sad" face sticker on his time chart for the day .... all those seem to be working better than taking away play time. I'm certainly open to other suggestions of what has worked for other kids too - I'm always learning
