or otherwise? I don't know who to call right now. Today was the worst day ever. Now he's hitting other kids. I need to call a therapist or someone, but I don't know where to start. Please help me. I want to cry, scream, yell right now. I just got a call from a Teacher to let me know he was removed from the class again.

If this doesn't pertain to you, thanks for the  bump.

ETA: I just want to say this. Thank you very much for all of the information. I have called his Ped. I'm looking into places to take him for behavioral therapy as well.

:( she's the one who called me to tell me she was out of ideas. I don't know why my son is so angry. He destroyed the entire classroom. I try disciplining him but he's defiant and still goes out and does what he wants. thanks

Has he done this before? Or ask him why he's hitting other kids.

Yeah we've been there and done this already. Multiple times. He's 5. He's not really talking, he's just doing

I need resources. We've already done all the asking, disciplining etc. Something more drastic needs to be done.

Ok. Ask your ped for a referral to a psychiatrist. Has he ever has a mental health eval?

I started with my childs pedi when he was hitting himself. We ruled out any need for a specialist.
