You are an AMAZING women!! That would really freak me out too. I'm going to send an e-mail to my sons' former aBA therapist. She is pretty knowledgable and might have some advice for you. Enjoy those rootbeer floats.

I should be the pro at dealing with the meltdowns by now. Gavin was the king of those, but has really come a long way in the last year and controls himself very well now. I worked really hard with him and maybe I just don't have the energy to do it again so soon. It just freaked me out that she was trying to chew her leg off. Gavin never really tried to hurt himself and I worry if this is something that will be a big issue for her.
Anyway...I'm loving this thread right now and am so looking forward to getting to know all of you better.....anyone want some rootbeer floats?
