Have you tried seeing someone who has experience with PTSD in children? It can often mimic ADD/ADHD, the anger issues may be symptomatic of that as well, even the soiling can figure in. Wittnessing the accident by itself would have been very traumatic for a child, then factor in his early life, and his fathers dubious discipline. I'd try and find someone who has experience in childhood trauma to work with your son. Unfortunately many therapists do not have experience in trauma and treat the symptoms instead of the root cause. You might call around to various therapists and ask about it, your local child and family services branch might also know of someone, and your doctor and the school would be good places to ask. I hope you find something that works, it sounds like the poor guy has been through a lot.
