Hi everyone! My 2.5 year old ds can be quite agressive. He's currently on the verge of getting kicked out of his 2nd daycare. He's been evaluated through early intervention and has been deemed a "normal" toddler with no special needs. He's been agressive since before he was one year old and at times he improves, and then regresses. Some days and weeks are good and some are not. I've been working with a number of professionals and with the daycare to make sure we're responding to his behavior and basically we're doing all of the right things.
One of the last straws I'm grabbing at here to try and help our situation is possible food or environmental allergies or sensitivities. I know he has gastrointestinal difficulties if he drinks cow's milk, so he only drinks rice or breast milk. Beyond that, the only other reasons I have to suspect allergies is his aggressive behavior and eczema. He gets dry scaly skin on his cheeks and and has a pretty bad patch right now on his shin.
I'm just not sure the best, most gentle and least disruptive way to go about diagnosing and treating this. I welcome any advice you can offer.
Thanks for your ideas! We tried TED for three days and had to stop b/c it was causing so much trouble at daycare. DS was EXTREMELY upset that he couldn't eat what the other kids were eating and the other kids were upset they couldn't eat what ds was eating. It was stressful for everyone and the last thing his teachers need is more stress -- his behavior causes them enough!
