It's been a long time since I've posted here. I'll try and be as brief as I can. I have an 11 year old totally non verbal severly autistic son. He is currently taking 7.5ml of abilify and 3ml of procentra. He had a horrible year last year at school with throwing epic meltdowns. This year, he was doing so much better. The only times he was having a meltdown was when he was in sever pain from ear infections. He got ear tubes put in back on nov 15. He seemed to be ok afterwards, but took a nose dive as far as behavior goes around the second week of dec. He is having horrible fits of rage at home and at school. His MHMR coordinator was here a few month ago just to go over the tx home living waiver program my son got. He is on the wait list for the other one that does pay for behavior therapy. She said the only way to get him to the top of the wait list is for us to put him in the hospital and I don't think that would do any good. She also said for me to call 911 when he's having a fit of rage. I didn't think too much about it until my son's speech therapist was here last fri. She asked me if cps contacted me because they called her asking a whole lot of questions about his behavior and why I just let him attack me when he's having fits or rage. Cps never came out to the house, she just called tues. They said the reporter said that we are not doing enough to help with his behavior issues, our house looks like a junkyard, the inside of our house has dirt and feces smeared all over the walls, our house is dirty, and I don't supervise him. We ended up taking him to his psychiatric dr on tues just to see if maybe we need to adjust his medications. The cps worker wanted to talk to the psychiatric dr and I had to sign a release form. The dr. does not recommend putting him in the hospital. Since he is autistic and does not go good with any change to his schelule, she said it is going to do him more harm than good. Our house does not have feces smeared all over the walls, we don't have trash piled outside in the yard. He is in a special needs classroom that just deals with kids who have behavioral issues, he gets in home parent support training through the school, and in home speech therapy. I don't understand why she said we are not doing enough? The psychiatric dr. doubled his abilify. Instead of taking 7.5mls in the am, she wants him to take 10mls in the am and 5ml in the afternoon. Does that seem like too much? We started doing that, but have not seen any change in behavior. The teacher said he is just being so aggressive at school acting like something hurts him. I can't figure out what. Just to be on the safe side, I made him an appointment. with a differnt dr. just to see if maybe the NP didn't get a good look at his ears. Can cps force us to put him in the hospital? Sorry this was so long.
