THIS WOMAN NEEDS TO DO SOME RESEARCH. AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDERS ARE NOT MENTAL ILLNESS. YOUR CHILD IS ACTING OUT FOR A REASON. BE HIS MOTHER AND DO YOUR BEST TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HE IS TRYING TO COMMUNICATE TO YOU WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO SAY IT WITH WORDS. CHILDREN LIKE THIS OFTEN HAVE AN INABILITY TO PUT INTO WORDS WHAT IS WRONG, SO THEY ACT OUT. THEY HAVE EXTREMELY RIGID IDEAS ABOUT RULES. IF ANOTHER CHILD WORE PANTS LIKE THAT TO SCHOOL AND IT WAS ACCEPTABLE IN HIS MIND THEY BECAME OK AND HER NOT LETTING HIM WEAR THEM ACTUALLY VIOLATED HIS "INTERNAL" RULES. MANY CHILDREN LIKE THIS HAVE DIFFICULTY WITH SENSORY OVERLOAD. MY SON IS ON THE SPECTRUM AND WILL NOT PUT ON CLOTHES THAT ARE COLD OR EAT FOODS WITH CERTAIN TEXTURES. IF I TRY TO FORCE THE ISSUE HE MELTS DOWN HOWEVER IF I PUT HIS CLOTHES IN THE DRYER FOR A MINUTE SO THEY ARE WARM HE GETS READY WITH NO PROBLEM. SOUND OVERLOAD IS ALSO AN ISSUE WITH MANY ASD PEOPLE. THEIR BRAIN DOES NOT FILTER AMBIENT NOISE SO THE GET OVERWHELMED EASILY. I'M SURE THE POLICE BLAZING IN WITH THEIR SIRENS AND TOO MANY PEOPLE SPEAKING TO HIM AT ONCE JUST MADE THE SITUATION WORSE. POLICE DEPARTMENTS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY ARE HOLDING TRAINING TO BETTER UNDERSTAND HOW TO DEAL WITH PEOPLE WITH ASD. PLEASE LOOK, INTO SOMETHING CALLED THE INCREDIBLE 5 POINT SCALE, YOU CAN MAKE ONE FOR FREE AND USE IT TO HELP DETERMINE WHAT YOUR CHILD'S TRIGGERS ARE. THEN TRY TO SEE WHAT SIMPLE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO MAKE THOSE TRIGGERS MORE TOLERABLE. THERE ARE PARENT GROUPS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY THAT MEET AND HELP EACH OTHER WORK THROUGH THESE TYPES OF ISSUES. BY HER DESCRIPTIONS IN THIS ARTICLE "MICHAEL" DOES HAVE SOME TRAITS OF AN AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER, BUT IT DOES NOT SEEM LIKE THAT IS ALL THAT IS GOING ON. BUT PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DON'T STIGMATIZE YOUR CHILD OR ANY OTHER CHILDREN LIK,E HIM BY COMPARING HIM TO ADAM LANZA. WITH SOME HARD WORK AND UNDERSTANDING ON YOUR PART YOU CAN AVOID THAT FOR YOUR CHILD.
