My 7 year old son is constantly yelling and acting out at school

My son has not really been around other children as a toddler. Both me and my husband work different shift so one of us was always home. So no daycare was needed. But when we put him into Kindergarden, he had no social skills. It was all thats mine, don't touch me, stop looking at me and playing alone. When other kids did play with him, it was his way or the "cry way". Now in grade 1, still the same. Yelling when he doesn't get his own way, not listening, crying at the drop of a hat. All the teachers are asking if we are taking him to see a "doctor" at some point. So we made an appointment with our pediatrician and see what he has to say. My son is so well behaved at home and he's been reading since he was 2 years old. So we are not worried about him academically, he just lacks social skills......(I think). I need some help or words of guidance.

Honestly, I'm not sure. But, I am sure a pediatrician would at the very least have some suggestions of who to see!

I'm the type to take the bull by the horns and start calling around, so I'd (If I were you, that is) just call therapists in your area to see if you'd need a referral. I would also ask around the area to see if any of your friends/coworkers may know of someone that they had good luck with.

Good luck!

So other than the last couple of school years, this child has had no socialization with other children?

Perhaps a behavioural therapist would help in getting him to understand the concepts of sharing, socializing, and appropriate behaviour.

Will his paediatrician be able to point us in the right direction or is this something we have to explore on our own, I wonder?
