Either reduce access to liquids or electrics.

The costs of raising a disabled child are huge compared to an able one. DLA is meant to address this. Make sure you are claiming all you are entitled to.

Is he verbal? Can he tell you why? Is it specific to electronic devices? Apart form the fire hazard does he understand this will stop the x box from working? The only thing I can think of is that electronic devices often emit a high pitched hum (really aggravates ds2 at times) and it might be to try and silence this.

My son likes to smash things and drop stuff out of the window. I can’t see it stopping anytime soon. He says he doesn’t know why he does it

officially you are meant to work out what the function of the behaviour is - and then you are supposed to replace it with a behaviour that performs the same function for him - so its at least as rewarding if not more.

So I have no idea how this works if you haven't got the foggiest why they do it or if he isn't even aware he is doing it...

A lot of things are good in theory but difficult in practice.

Have you any idea - is he frustrated, bored, trying to get out of doing something
