Has anyone had their children or as a person with Asperger's gone through moments of being aware of personal space and then not so much. My son had a few instances happen at his Christmas party at school. A couple of kids got hurt accidentally, he told me about them but I'm not sure that it was really all his fault. But he is 11( just turned 11 last saturday). He is the size of most 13 year olds atleast. But maturity wise sometimes behind a little. Last year he seemed to do better with Personal space. He is on Straterra to help him focus at school but I think with the raging hormones and growing so much, I think he feels out of his own skin at times and when he looks sometimes he looks straight ahead, well for him he doesn't see many other kids at eye level because he is so tall. Does anyone have any ideas on how we can help him be more aware of this so that he is not constantly getting in trouble for something he did not intentionally do. He is a very sweet person, very nurturing and loving. He is not one to retaliate and hurt someone. As I said both the teacher and Darin believe it was an accident. The one instance, another boy was jumping up to get something Darin had and they hit heads. My son had a scratch on his chin. The other one they were playing musical chairs and a girl got hurt on her side. He is not an overly aggressive child, but does tend to get over excited. The teacher is now referring him for instructional support because of the things that happened at the party. I don't necessarily thinks it's a bad thing. But what more can I do than what I've already been doing? Is it really fair to punish him for things that he doesn't get or when he gets over excited and such. He ended up in the office the day of the party. I am frustrated and concerned. I just want to know how else to help him. I understand where he is coming from I believe. I also understand that he perceives things differently than others. I don't think they always realize that at school.
