I have a 6yr old girl who is super aggressive at school and today smashed a window with her hand (on purpose).
We have had her tested for any special conditions/needs and she came back with dyslexia and nothing else..
We have done every type of testing and counciling and Psychologist visits and other then being stone poor we have had no results (been going on since 5yrs)...
She comes from a two parent hm where she has a younger sister and NO violence or bad behaviour to copy ..
HELP WE DONT NO WHAT TO DO ANY MORE!!! B

So what did the psychologist recommend? Even if there isn't a diagnosis assigned to her, surely the psychologist would have recommendations for you and for the school in managing the behavior. That is what they are there for. If it is the school psychologist, then there should be no financial expense involved.

She may be too young for certain diagnoses to be made, so keep tabs on her behavior and work to address the issues as they come. Give her various outlets for expressing herself (is she able to verbally express herself if she is angry?). If she has impulse issues, see if the school counselor can work with her to come up with a system where she can "stop-think-act" when she is angry; or use "time-outs" to calm down before she reacts to something. Is she going through anything difficult in her life that might be fueling some of this? Loss? Change? Bullying? Other? Continue with the counseling to help her feel supported and so that someone can help coach her behaviors. Behavior charts and rewards might help here too.
