    I loved reading this story. I have talked to places that work with kids who can have tantrums and even be aggressive and they are willing to work with us..partly because we have had pets successfully for years and he bonds with them.

    But even minus the dogs, this is exactly what I have been saying is happening at school with Q.

    Toward the end of the story it talks about his being bullied caused him to bully in effect....but in reality he has such poor boundaries, it is just about being desperate for peer attention. Very sad and very familiar.

    Thanks for sharing the story. Really amazing how many kids have disabilities like this. And more than a little frustrating that for many, it was completely avoidable.
