Autism single parent dating
In your post it sounds like you didn't do any research at all...behavior is typical, and you cannot use traditional methods of discipline.Non-verbal kids act out because they can't express their needs, he most likely has sensory issues as well that cause him to act out, as well as the huge, huge CHANGE in his life, which people with Autism do not adjust to quickly.As a single parent, dating may not always be at the forefront of your thoughts.Taking care of children, a home, and working is enough to keep anyone so busy that the thought of going out may be just too much.If you live with autism, you know how “exciting” life can be!
It takes a particular, rare sort of person to enter into a relationship with a person with a child who has a severe disability, and to navigate the relationship heathily. He is 4, he is non verbal, destroys everything, not potty trained, doesnt follow simple instructions, screams and yells almost constantly, throws or wont eat anything except for 2 or 3 foods, shows little to no affection.
Handling the ins and outs of living with a person with autism is a no small thing, and that's in the best of circumstances. However she keeps saying he is "high functioning" and thinks he is a genius. However at other times she is totally beside herself with ftustratiom with this child.
