behavior and how to replace it
My son has autism and he has an issue when he's at his day program. He likes to wet his shirt in the sink. I believe it's sensory related but have asked the day program to not let him do it. They didn't listen and continued to let him play in the sink, to the point he soaked his shirt, pants, and underwear. He does not do this at home. Now, he's become so obsessed with it, he's getting upset if they don't let him do it. Problem is, he was bounced between different providers and there was no consistently or follow through with him not being able to play in the sink. Because of this, and the fact that he's done this for months, he gets super frustrated when someone doesn't let him. Any ideas on why he's doing this and what I could possibly work on to replace this with a more appropriate behavior? One of the main reasons I told them not to let him do it is because it's not constructive, he doesn't know the difference between hot and cold water, and he could end up flooding the bathroom or burning his hands. Any advice would be great. Thanks!
