I need a little help. DS is 8 and diagnosed ASD for about 3 years now, high functioning but speech problems. School is awesome, aides are great.

The problem is he has started to hurt himself again. If he is reminded something is inappropriate (another huge issue) he is so hard on himself he starts puching himself in the face/head/body. Hard enough to really hurt himself. I usually have to hold him down to get him to stop. It has been happening more and more and I am not sure what steps we can take to get him to stop again. He has also taken a few swings at me that did not go over so well. We have had a few changes around the home front ( I started a dayhome) but his schedule is for the most part the same. Any ideas would be great. Thanks.
