I am not my behaviour

28 Mar

Last day of term, mufti, lessons are not real lessons… So what happens? Yep, fights, silly behaviour and fights.

‘Typical of him to ruin it, I am never doing this again if they always wreck it’ said a teacher.

DON’T FORGET, they are autistic. Children on the spectrum are not able to communicate anxiety so they show you through behaviour. Why does this not always look the same? Because all our life experiences are different.

If a child comes from a family where shouting and hitting stuff is what adults do, then that must be what all adults do, no?

If a child comes from a home where crime is what adults do, then crime must be the way we all de-stress. No?

Don’t forget, we all arrive at the start of each day with our ware paper baskets half full, and the contents are different for all of us.

Don’t judge a child by his behaviour, regardless of ASC or not. Stop and think. What is the cause of this behaviour? It’s probably not what you first thought.
