My DS is 5 years old and has PDD. Lately it seems like I have no patience with him. I snap at him and find myself yelling a lot. I just get tired of telling him the same things over and over again. I don't know if he just doesn't understand what I say or if he does understand and he's just being a typical 5 year old. So if your DC is Autistic or has other communication or developmental delays, how do you stay patient and what kind of strategies do you use? Thank you all in advance. I just want to do what is best for my little man.
