three anger outburst in three days, all three involved throwing or damaging school property.
He's aggression is really escalating at a rapid pace right now. Its almost like he isn't even medicated at this point.
I am putting in a call the the psych tomorrow to see if we can't push our appointment up sooner...we need to help him NOW.

I'm so sorry. This can't be easy for anyone involved. I hope they can move the appointment up for you. Have you talked to the school about how to help cope with the episodes?

Cameron is a lot younger and isn't aggressive really, but he does pull major tantrums and throws things. So we just remove him from the situation and leave him in a quiet safe place so he can work through his feelings. Once he calms down on his own he's ready to resume his day.

I find that if I try to calm him myself it just makes it worse. Maybe try working with the school on something like a "timeout zone" outside the class? That way it will be less embarrassing for him too acting out in class. That probably makes it worse for him. And if kids are acting like kid they are probably teasing him about his outbursts.

I'm sorry to hear he's having such a hard time...its a big stressor for the family when they are out of control. Yes, I would give the psych a call and see if they'll take him in asap. Maybe its a problem with his meds? My oldest has been on a few meds. that really adversly affect her. We stay away from all SSRI's...her first med trial was Zoloft and she was completely off the wall...it was quite scary. She's since tried many meds. with very little result so we're going the med. free route for now. Some think we're crazy but we always tell them up front that the benefit of the med needs to be apparent to justify her being on it. Some kids will need meds and find meds that help...its trial and error...and a lot of times, not fun but when you get the right one or right combination, its worth it. I hope you can get in with the psych much earlier than May. I wouldn't be surprised if they can get you in right away.
(((((hugs)))))

I'm sorry and I hope that the doctor can work you call in sooner. Has anything at all changed at school? ANYTHING, even something small? Recently my daughter started having huge anger outbursts and panic attacks - it turns out the catalyst was something she was happy about but it was just overwhelming her so we had to have the school pull back on it
