Hi! Not new to this forum, however, I have another problem. As I posted before, I have an autistic, non verbal, 14 year old son. He is the size of a man (over 6", over 200 lbs) and can be very, very aggressive. Lately, there has been a conflict between me and a certain inexperienced staff member at his school. To make a long story short, this "person" has recently included in his treatment plan to suspend or withhold lunch priveleges if there are behavioral problems with him(I have not spoken to the school yet to find out what this is supposed to mean, but they will be getting a call on Monday; I just read the form). Also, I found out that he has been excluded from doing an activity they provide at the school, an activity that he absolutely loves, is great at, and is very therapeutic for him. I am deeply hurt. I know he can be very difficult to deal with sometimes, but I trusted this school. He has been going to this school for years. I don't know what to do. I think this is extremely unfair to him. He can't voice his emotions or opinions. I am heart-broken.

Hi! I'm a master's student and also have a phobia. It's motivated me to study this stuff and try and find a way to feel ready for exposure therapy, because I know it's so hard for many of us. It took me a long time to take my own treatment seriously and face my fears. So, I'm looking for people to take a 5-10 min survey. If you're 18 or older, have experience with exposure therapy or want to, and...
