My 16 yo son has recently moved back with me. He has asd and add and was beaten up in other household as parent could not cope. Son has worsening OCD and it is taking his day up. He is now staying in his room, eating one small meal and taking over my house. His bathroom, toilet, floors, his clothes and so many things have rituals and routines. I am trying to connect him with supports - he has NDIS. But its so hard.
I realise COVID has been cruel and he has been allowed to go into school, but now refuses after he had an issue with another student. I am a high school teacher and know he is ticking all the boxes for desperate help and how much this is hurting him.
I don't know the 'rules' he works by as they are expanding and getting more rigid.
He is so tall and strong, so unless he wants to do something, there is no way i can get him to do anything.
He sees a psych fortnightly, for OCD, yet i am not sure she is helping. He is not ready to do self help. I fear that it will get so much worse.
Thanks for listening, can i have some strategies please?
