    I like it that you got yourself into a fetal position. Does it calm you down and make you feel better? It does for me, and I’m NT. God bless you and your family. You are pretty good lucking!

    This makes me sad.

    The reason he is hitting himself, is because it helps to relieve physical pain he is in from time to time. You can’t sit still because your legs feel like they are on fire
    Or it feels like a hundred ants are crawling up your arms. The hitting takes that pain away. PS. Give him a keyboard to type on. Don’t be surprised when he does. :)

    there’s nothing to say i guess , maybe that you truly have a heart of an angel … can it be dangerous for James to have severe brain trauma as he hit himself ?

  6. NiamhFrancisPianist says:

    I don’t know why they’d advise against a helmet. It is effectively a head-shaped pillow so that if he does hit himself, it doesn’t injure him. I like that chew necklace. Poor guy, he’s lucky to have such a good family. And yes, he is very handsome!

    My younger brother has autism and constant seizures. When I saw the video, I could relate and couldn’t help but cry. I wish congrees would make a health care reform, better insurance, anything to make a special needs child’s life better.

  8. R0nard says:

    you guys are great parents. you love your son and im very sure he loves you back

    @Pam4Rob What state are you in? If you don’t mind my asking. Where I live, they don’t even want to provide inhome nurses. We only get respite and we have to deal with regional centers. These assholes think they quick fix is to remove the child from the home.

  10. dcao2 says:

    i work with many individuals who have special needs. iv had experience with individuals with autism and having to deal with physical restraints. it is emotionally, mentally and physically exhausting.
    however, its indescribable to explain the connection that you’re able to share between two people. i know some days its so exhausting, but he is your son and i am so happy that you love him. god bless.

    i would want someone to shoot me, i would not be a functioning part of society

    Jamey is so cute! I am training to become a nurse for special needs/handicapped children. I have a little cousin who is moderately autistic (due to mercury poisoning) but he does not have SIB, you are truely SUPER MOM! Kudos!!

    I came across this link in a comment to an article i was reading while researching self-injury. i am a behavior specialist with tons of experience across many spectrums of MR/DD. I first want to commend you for your patience and compassion in parenting a child with developmental disabilities because it most certainly the hardest job ever. I also want to say that in my experiences pillows are rarely ever successful when treating SIB.

  14. DolceVita says:

    you have the toughest job in the world. what a good mum you are!!

  15. 01stanbk says:

    i’de just like to say what you do is amazing!!!!

  16. ediann says:

    i feel so sad for this young lad. you can clearly see how much his mom and family love him and want to help him. he breaks my heart seeing this but it is very important to show others. may god always be with you. i have an 11 year old with asperger’s and he also has meltdowns and self injurious behavior but not to this extent. i will pray for you and your son and family.

  17. FreeMystery says:

    once again, i give you alot of credit, you are a great mother for staying by your sons side, he needs you, a mothers love is the most powerful force , i am in tears watching these videos, but you display great patience, and i give you the utmost respect, this truly sets a great example of what a mother is and should always be, right there for her kids no matter what, ty for posting

  18. bluebanshee3 says:

    it’s really awful that there aren’t more services available. you’re a courageous team, you and your son. i hope you both find some respite from the self-injury.

  19. kgaccount says:

    @bluebanshee3 …..totally agree. He does seem to respond to tighter hugs. It takes a lot to keep hugging him though when he’s trying to punch himself. You have to really maneuver around him so you don’t get accidently hit, as he is hitting himself. We have weighted blankets. Hardest thing is what works one day, won’t work next time, so you have to have grab bag of ideas close by and just go through each one, hoping one will re-direct his thinking away from punching himself….

  20. bluebanshee3 says:

    i notice you use a lot of pats and light “tickle touches.” it seems counter-intuitive, but some people with sensory issues (i’m one, lol) find pats and light touches to be overstimulating at times. (i’m not saying that’s what causes the sib—AT ALL! i think you’re very courageous and a very good parent, above and beyond.)

    have you tried steady even touch? some find weighted blankets, for example, to be very calming, or deep hugs–though not all like hugs. won’t solve, but may help.

  21. WizardOfHumor1989 says:

    Poor kid! He’s got beautiful eyes and looks like James Marsden!

  22. michelebeth says:

    Oh my god, I saw this video and it went straight to my heart. I have 2 children with autism (14 and 15). My youngest had self injurious behavior, but not as bad as this. My heart goes out to you and your precious family. How strong and patient and loving you are. XO

  23. ldp258 says:

    what a strong, loving mother.

    god bless you.

  24. refi68 says:

    He is a handsome young man. You are a wonderful and patient mom. I applaud you for trying everything you can to keep him at home with you. I have a 9 year old autistic son who is aggressive towards others. Thank God we haven’t seen any seizure activity in him. I wish you and your family the best
