Hi, I have an almost 6 year old special needs little boy who has this tendancie to "Full on smack you across the face", when he's told no or you take something away from him. I've tried removing him from the situation, trying to calm him down by talking to him to distract him, but no matter what he always feels the need to hit someone. How else can this be dealt with? Is this just how special needs children express themselves? He doesnt yell and hes just learning how to give his opinion. Any advice would be nice

I'm not an expert but why don't you try to catch his hand before he hits, caress him while telling him he's hurting you? I don't know...
