I know this might sound odd or strange, but today has been a bit of an odd one.
Firstly let me explain … I know my son has autism, it’s obvious … He loves routines, visuals work better than words for him, his speech has been delayed and he has sensory issues around certain noises. I am completely comfortable with the fact he is autistic.
But today has been odd. Today he seemed more autistic than ever. From breakfast he’s been ‘in one’ just more combative, hitting and getting upset for no known reason. The old T came back a little today, just a little too much obsessive, acting up, running off, hitting me.
I thought we were over this. This is the old style, which I thought we had put behind us. The question is can an autistic child be more autistic on some days than others? I guess something triggered it today but I haven’t worked it out yet.
We sometimes have days like these and the following days are back to normal. We will just ride the rest of the day out and hopefully T will be back to his ‘normal’ self tomorrow.
