    I have a kindergarten student with ODD (opositional defiance disorder). I have tried everything to avoid the onset of a major tempor tantrum. This child goes off the deep end at the drop of a hat. He is very aggressive towards me and the other students. Does anyone have experience with this disorder? I need suggestions to keep my sanity and to keep the rest of my class on track. PLEASE HELP!

    I have absolutely no background here.

    But can you begin to track what happens immediately before a breakdown?? Maybe some patterns will emerge and you can start to deal wit it?

    ODD help

    Hi,
    First of all please know that ODD ususally doesn't come on it's own. Lots of times it's attached to other things like ADHD, Aspergers, Tourettes... the list goes on.

    But here is a wonderful book to get. It's called the Explosive Child by Ross W. Greene, PH.D

    It was a wonderful book to read regarding behavior and interesting too.
