Aggression

Alex is getting worse. Really really bad worse. Like pushing an old person at church worse, trying to kill the cat worse.
We have to actually sit in the same room with him during a temper tantrum but not too close or he will bite, scratch or punch us. If we leave him alone he does all of these things to himself. He will beat his head on the edge of something until it opens up and bleeds. He will bite himself until he has torn his own flesh. I cannot wait until we get this figured out. I am watching my son slip away from me and I feel like there is nothing I can do...
