I take care of an adult with mild autism who has very good days and then when stresses out, he hits his head on the wall, blood mess today, smacks fist on the table. He has been told he cannot visit at home when he has this bad behavior. I take our other residents who I care for on outings...My adult with autism had a very bad day today and now insist I let him go on our next outing even tho he cannot visit his parents this week.. He was banned from going home this weekend to visit family. I say he needs to learn from his mistakes and NOT go with the rest of us this weekend...I'm afraid if I say no, he will injure himself again..How do I deal with this ? Please help. Thanks.

people with autism CANNOT be punished in ways that the rest of us understand. they feel an increased detatchment from social situations on a regular basis. not taking him on the outing is reinforcing his bad behavior. instead of taking things away when he is bad, give him extra when he is good. you will find he responds to this better.
