I just read a kool article the science of laughter and it's deff what is missing from all therapies working with these types of kids . Every approach is serious and authoritarian like . Laughter is cross cultural and necessary for social development and bonding ! Can post the link .... it's also good for pain reduction

I also started with a familybwith teens here giving them poems.....their favorite songs are like poems and then let them write something on it......think this helps with theory of mind and perspective taking but also is just nice to express yourself on paper or drawing which is less explosive lol plus I think teens connect with music a lot

Hey troy ....not sure what you think of this but maybe you can "write a letter to the teachers" and send it through him . Don't seal it . And his curiosity will probably get to him and he will read it . And just let it be a letter explain that he should not be denied to come to you guys and how much you guys enjoy his presence and it isn't fair etc . The purpose being not for it to be important that it reaches the teacher but that he expects it will be a letter that he does something wrong and he sees that you guys are advocating for him and like him which is the c9ncept of unconditional love which is safety .....i think all the punishment and extrinsic motivation build distrust . And if he does give it to the teacher then great too? And offer a training for the teachers about MM or what you guys do and tips for him ?

Sounds like your doing great though ?
