I am a male, middle school teacher in New Jersey and I am looking for help regarding a student. I don't know if he qualifies as a conduct disorder under this site or any other definition. This 10-11 year old boy has demonstrated extreme emotional reactions to grades or missed work. He has an A to A- average and rarely misses any work or achieves a grade lower than B. His outbursts have ranged from hysterical crying to curling up into a ball on the floor to most his most recent outburst that scared me and several of his peers. The last incident consisted of hitting himself 15-20 times on the legs, hysterical crying and dropping to his knees in a ball. This lasted for about five minutes and he hit himself so hard I could feel the vibrations in the floor. The outburst occurred after he forgot to do a homework assignment. According to the school counselor, he has told her he knows when he is going to explode but he never shows any sign of it in class. I am honestly scared of and for this student. I am scared that his next outburst can lead him to hurt himself or another person in the class. Does any of this sound familiar?
