My son is six and a half years old. He was diagnosed with ASD when he was three. He is very intelligent, and was usually very affectionate, sociable and comunicative. But now he goes hyper, is rude, won't listen, won't be told, won't behave and is very difficult to control/discipline. He has always has love and attention lavished upon him. He has never lacked anything, and has never been subjected to cruelty. I have always been firm but fair with him, and this always worked before. Now all he does is act like a big and very silly baby, who is mostly running riot. When he gets like this (very often now) I just can't get through to him. Ignoring his bad behaviour is just getting too much now. He is wild and destructive in his many temper tantrums and his favourite word is NO. Tried timeout but now have to physically drag him to his room. Withdrawal of priveledges has only limited effect, as usually he won't listen to reason. He seems to delight in his silly and bad behaviour. What has happened to my loving, well behaved boy? How can I regain control/discipline as I am being driven to depression. I would be extremely grateful for any advice.
