Handle Teens with Autism - A Cure for Autism? - How to Deal With Autistic Teenagers | Tips on - Find TipsThere is no particular cure for autism. When an autistic child grows to become an autistic teen, the problems double. It is not always possible to control their behavioural patterns and not at all feasible to be with them 24×7.

Anger and ensuing destruction is one of the most common behaviour autistic teenager displays. And anger without any visible reason. They show anger outburst with the slightest provocation. Ignoring such behaviour is impossible but adding fuel to the fire is a strict no-no.

There are some steps that parents can take to deal such an autistic teenager:

Non-Interference: However the teen might behave, never take it personally and lose patience. That would not help but the child needs your help. When a teen is out of control, remain calm (which is hard to do). Do not interfere with what the teen is doing. Maintain distance and never try to argue, or else the situation will worsen.

Environment: If you know that the teen, since childhood, has the habit to get excessively violent when angry, then, to ensure everyone’s safety and the teen’s too, keep sharp objects out of the reach. They might scream, throw objects and try to hit at people. What is best in this situation is to let the teen be alone by self. This way they calm down easily and anger subsides too.

Get A Friend: There might be somebody who knows, understands and is capable to handle the situation properly. It could be anybody. Sometimes, it is seen that such close people are the ones to whom they confide with and they only have the power to control the autistic attack.

Medical Help: Call for medical help as the last resort remaining. Or keep the medicines ready if you already have been consulting doctors since their childhood.

Handling autism is a trying process for parents but they do need the compassion and understanding which parents can give only.
