Hello, New here and looking for answere's.
I have a 7yr old son, soon to be 8 next Tuesday. Ever since Dec 7, 2011 he has been acting not him self, i'm not even sure if this should be here (but i say a post almost like this so thought i would ask anyways). And when i say not acting himself, i mean acting out in class. Like throwing things around, crawling on the floor, acting like a dog/cat. He will run into class room's, and throw things off the teachers decks, in his own class, he will just get up and walk around. Now according to the teacher he is getting violent with them biting/hitting them, he has gotten so mad before that in the library he knocked the book shelf's down and throw something and hit a little girl. We have been to see a person about his problem, and they can't help us they did say they though it might be adhd. But now it's not that? he was in school for 2 wks and they took him out cause it got so bad, now he is going to another school called soar for bad kids. Anyone has a child like this? I'm just looking for answer's. Since i can't get any.

It sounds more like Oppositional Defiant Disorder.

This disordr is sometimes present with ADHD, but your DS doesn't sound like he's had issues with it before and I think you would have noticed by now.
Definately speak with a pshychologist.

Re: Hello, New here and looking for answere's.
My nephew displayed symptoms quite similar to what you have described when he was the same age as your son. We were quite worried about the sudden change in his behavior and referred to our general practitioner, the school counselor and even a child psychologist.
It turned out that he was just finding it difficult to cope at school and it was all a part of growing up. I’d advise you to change him back to a regular school that has good counseling services and adequate provisions for managing tantrums and behavioral issues…unless of course, the current school seems to be doing a good job and you see improvement in his behavior.
Wish you luck. Don’t worry too much about it.
