How unfortunate. That, and a tad bit ironic. Perhaps he gave the book a good use after all.
tie his neck and limbs to dumbells and throw him in the depths of the atlantic ocean.
Shoulda given him the book "how to make sweet passionate love to a woman".
Tell him that if he clams down he can have a cookie, works every time.
@67 Ignorant or not, I'd take the cookie. Especially if it's got chocolate in it. Most people of FML would take the cookie. Mum used a similar technique on me when I let my emotions get out of control - just distract me with something like a toy or treat food or just talking about something I like.
Just because Autistic kids have problems does not mean they are not smart. I'm not sure if you have ever heard of Temple Grandin but she is highly autistic and designer of move then 50% of the cattle shoots though out the U.S. and Canada. Don't be so quick to judge.
Autism is a disorder, not a mental illness. I wish people would bother to find that out rather than immediately deciding that because they behave the way they do, they're unstable in the head. My brother is autistic, mildly, and he is the smartest and most enthusiastic learner I know. As well as there being negatives with autism, there are a lot of positives.
Boy, you can't read very well, can you? Otherwise you certainly would have noticed OP is a support worker who tries to help autistic kids, and in my world, helping someone isn't the same as making fun of them. Don't be that sensitive, OP wasn't making fun at all and I bet banananut would have wrote the same comment if it wasn't an autistic kid. It's very cool that you want to help people with autism, but if someone beats you as hard as he could with a book, you would definitely have right and reason to write an FML. Even if they can't help it.
I help kids with mental and physical disabilities play sports, do work, compete in special olympics, etc. Im only 15. I looked on this post to start a fight with someone making fun of these kids. But no one said anything offensive. My sister has downs. I have a friend who's brother has autism. I know what is offensive and what isn't, this isn't.... There are good people out there
People with autism shouldn't be looked down on, or treated any different than a normal person. My sister has autism and she functions just like any other person. Treating an autistic person like they are different gives them the idea that they are different and that they can't function "normally". I understand that some cases are more dramatic than others and that some need more attention but that's no reason to treat them differently.
You ought to take that kid to a gun range and let him fire a machine gun for a while to let out his hostility. What could go wrong?
OMG yes! My son is autistic and if you think it's bad getting regular kids to brush their teeth try an autistic one. I mean flat Out screaming, kicking and falling on the floor. The poor dentists that do see him cant ever do any work. He always has to be under sedation which is soooooo expensive. You could specialize in helping autistic kids with dental problems, its very widespread.
