Another post got me thinking about this.




Should Autistic children face the same consequences as NT children?



Why? Why not?

to a point yes if the child knows its wrong to hit but choses to hit someone they should get the same punishment as any other child

That is a question that would have to go into much deeper detail because the Autism spectrum is soooo wide.

Depends on the child, the action and the situation.

For instance, taking away a toy/privelage from some autistic children does no good. For some it's absolutly devestating and can cause days of meltdowns.

Agree. Can't really answer this as it's circumstantial and really a child-to-child basis.

To an extent, if they understand the consequence. Obviously time outs and such are more difficult, but definitely loss of privelages etc.

THIS I have two aspergers siblings who are 100% different than my friends aspergers children, who are also 100% different from me (i am also neuro-atypical w/o a diagnosis)

I'll use my son as an example.



He's four years old in preschool. He doesn't understand hurting people. He doesn't get that he's hurting kids. They all fight but he's been in like 6 fights I think. They are super understanding and it's never been an issue.



If you were the parent of another child in his class would you be pissed that he doesn't get the same treatment as your child ( assuming your child fighting too )

No, because it's a totally different level of understanding.

I would be annoyed if it was happening and no body was stepping in to stop it though.

There are two teachers in there so I'm surprised it's happened so much. He's also wandered out of class. I happened to be walking by his room to have an IEP meeting and saw him walking out of the room.

In that scenario I would be pissed. After 3 fights (not little kids arguing over a toy, but a child hurting another one by biting, spitting, kicking, etc) the daycare I worked at didn't let your child return. I understand SN children are different in their comprehension (depending on severity of the disorder) but their are programs geared towards their SN. My child would have been sent home with half that many. It isn't fair to let one kid stay after that many fights unless you are willing to go on a case by case basis with all kids.
