I am the mom of a five year old son with Down Syndrome. Was hoping someone had some ideas for me. He has the tendency to swipe things off of desks (the teachers), end tables, counters, you name it. Also will tip over end tables, coffee tables, chairs etc. His teachers and I are trying to figure out what triggers this. We have noticed it will sometimes occur if it's too chaotic or loud, someone laughs but he thinks they are angry or yelling. He also tends to do it when any attention isn't all his, like when I'm helping his older brother with homework. We're looking for a way to prevent it,lessen it, words or pictures to use, etc. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
