Therapeutic school for extremely defiant Asperger 13yo
I am at the rope’s end.
My 13 year old Asperger son has become extremely defiant, aggravated and acted like he has regressed back to 3 years old possibly due to puberty since few months ago.
We had to call sheriff due to safety and he had to be hospitalized for 5150 a month ago. After coming home with some medication adjustment, outbursts and meltdowns are still occuring frequently. Trigger of these problems are always controlled computer time (2/3 hrs weekday/weekend.) I also felt like he was agitated by a certain war game that he is playing all the time.
He has high IQ (144). Used to love reading, designing but it’s all gone now. He seems to have regressed and cared only about that computer. When he is not on computer, he is on his phone with Instagram or TV on crime series.
I am truly desperate and feeling like my child is slipping away from me turning into someone totally unrecognizable. Medication didn’t help. He wouldn’t talk to therapist. He didn’t care how people perceive him or school rules. I am losing him.
Would a RTC be helpful for a teen like him? There seems to be underlying medical issues that we don’t understand. Meanwhile, home has turned into some place pathetic and we felt like we are being terrorized all the time.
God (and every one) please help me!
