hiya, so my son who has ADHD finds it hard to regulate his emotions when angry or upset will lash out and destroy my home. 
Is there any way he can see an OT who can help
with ways around this and help him use some sort of tool in this case?

    Hi @demzz920 and a warm welcome to the community!

    How old is your son?

    An OT maybe able to help. Or even some form of anger management which will allow him to understand his emotions and support him in managing them better.

    It can often be about learning the signs of getting worked up, and having things in place which will stop the situation from escalating.

    The SENCo (if your son is at school) may also be able to help :)

    How old is your child now? Definitely ask about OT and anger reduction therapy too. Does your son go to school? If so the teacher may also be able to help you access resources and services. Also try exercise as well. Try the breathing technique to help.
    Do you have a GP or not? If so ask them to refer you for anger therapy. Also a squeezy ball is a good short term solution to your problem. Has he always been like this? A diary may help. Is he on medication? I would also talk to them about meds that may control the anger.
