SPD, Anxiety, and Aggressive Behavior

by Katie

Hello, my son who is six was diagnosed with SPD about six months ago. Within the last few months whenever he is faced with something new (even if it is fun, like going to a movie) he gets a stomach aches and in some situations often acts out very aggressively (I.e kicking, hitting, throwing things.) As you can imagine this has been quite difficult to manage in kindergarten. Does anyone else deal with anxiety that then turns into aggression? Have you sought outside help/evaluation? If so, did they recommend medication? I am at a total loss for what to do and feel overwhelmed. Any words of advice would be appreciated. Thank you!
