Is Your Autistic Child Avoiding Requests?

Are you baffled by your child’s behavior? Do they say no to simple requests that they seemed to enjoy the day before? Are you struggling to understand why they behave this way?

Join the editor of Autism Parenting Magazine, Sharon Longo as she discusses Autism and Pathological Demand Avoidance with Dr. Brett J. Novick.

With over twenty-five years of experience in the fields of mental health, parenting, marital and family therapy, as well as public education, Dr. Novick will help you discover simple techniques to spot, avoid, and walk through these confusing behaviors with your child.

Dr. Brett J. Novick

Think of your child’s anger as a boiling pot of water. If we take the pot off the stove for a few moments, it will stop boiling; place it back on, and it immediately boils back up.

Let it settle to room temperature, and it will take longer to boil again. Similarly, our children’s tempers and bodies need time to return to “room temperature.”
