My almost 7 year old son has been diagnosed with Bipolar, Intermiitent Explosive Disorder, ODD, he also has extreme sensory problems. He had to be admitted already, and now his doctor thinks he has ADHD, and we are still waiting for the results to come back that will determine if he has Aspergers. He is verbally and physically agressive towards his almost 9 year old brother along with myself, dad, and others as well. He doesn't have agressive behavior at school, but educationally he is having a hard time. I feel like I try and try, but get no where. I'm currently working with the school to get him an IEP, so he can get OT. I'm also working on getting him a weighting blanket. Does anyone have any ideas or soothing techniques?View Thread
