Is he/she on meds? I have been dealing with one since the 2nd grade. It takes a lot of time and patience to deal with these types of children. I have to take time out to "remember" that he is just not acting out, but he has a disability. I try to help keep my sanity by keeping him busy. When they are occupied, things aren't so bad, when they aren't challenged enough mentally or kept busy, that is when you develop the problems. I have found that the combo of medication and keeping occupied is the combo that works for me.

Hope this helps
