I have surgery early tomorrow AM, so it may be a while before I post again. I’m sorry for the delay in finishing my posts on discipline and the autistic child…..but I just didn’t get there. Short answer: get rid of (or minimize) the obstacles to learning and communication, and discipline problems are greatly reduced. Then use behavior modification to help with motivation issues – and also pray a lot!  I know that is probably not specific enough to be helpful if you need answers right now to a specific situation, but that’s the best I can do right now. Blessings to you all, and I’ll post again on the other side of the great surgical divide…..lol
