Holding therapy for Autism ?

I was reading an article, about holding therapy for autism spectrum disorders.

and I have a friend who's son has ASD.

They tried holding therapy, until the child needed and accepted comfort, and eye contact etc..

Aspergers syndrome was the diagnosis.


The kid responded, by not accepting comfort, growing more and more defiant against being comforted, and eventually beat his mother to a pulp with an aluminum baseball bat, as a retaliation for "even trying to help him" in his own words, age 12.


what do you think about this ?

They tend to have personal space issues.

That was violated repeatedly and forcefully and to him it was the same as being abused.

I mean, should she just throw his clothes at him, and tell him that,

'as soon as your ass is 18, you can go live on the street for all I care" ?

I mean, a lot of parents do, after cases like that.

Maybe she should not have smothered him.

I am on the spectrum myself.

There are times when I enjoy human comfort, but it's on my terms. Is that so bad?

Apparently it's not real effective. Awful stuff, but some people just can't be reached. sad2.gif

Well, I love my Mom so taking a bat to her is not much of an option. But if I were deeper into the spectrum, I can see how that would happen.

My case? I don't have one. I never beat my mother to death with a metal bat.

I don't really know. I know that I scored very deep into the spectrum for a functional person but I don't have regular observation or help. On my own.

Infact, in my case, I was the opposite.

I would be too friendly, to affectionate, and too trusting of others, and loved mere acquaintances too much.

:P

I am violent, but not usually as a result of my condition. My acts of violence are usually calculated rather than instinctive.
