Has anyone got the same problem with their autistic young adult as I have? My son who is 27 has been in independent living for 4 years, has 2:1 24 hour care.  The problem is there has been a high turn over of staff during the past 18 months.  I went to visit again after the covid lockdown, while the first visit went well with 2 new carers there, the next 2 visits went really badly, he became extremely agitated, hit out at staff and me and the property, staff managed to get him to his room but this behaviour continued until he starts to calm down but not for long, I’m told to leave as they don’t want the behaviour to escalate further. In the past the visits have been varied but these recent ones have been far the worst overall in the 4 years.  I really don’t know what to do, any help would be grateful. Thanks
