Hello I am looking for some advice, will be posting this in SEN forum too. I have a boy in my class with Aspergers (v recent diagnosis) who has, rather worryingly, in the last 2 months started to be very physical with other children in the class - hitting, kicking, pushing. This is mostly completely unprovoked. I have been advised to use social stories with him to help him understand what is socially acceptable and how to be kind, but this is slow work with little progress! I am getting worried as there are usually incidents of him being physical like this several times a day. He is now being supervised by an adult at playtimes. Interestingly the vast majority of these incidents are at lunchtime play, he is usually much better the rest of the day. Does anyone have any advice for other tactics that I can use to try and get him to stop hitting. I am worried that soon none of the other children will like him and he will be realy isolated from the class. Simply telling him not to do it gets me nowhere and missing his playtime and other such punishments have little effect. Any advice greatly appreciated.
