Re: Sudden aggressive behavior in 12 yr. old DS son--any advice?

Hi, I have a 24 year old sisiter with Downs syndrome, and in the last few months she has been having outbursts where she will grap and pull on someones hair, and 2 adults cannot get her off. she cries and looks very angry and distressed. she has done this twice to me, to my mum and to the careers at her day program. my mum wants to keep her home because she is worried she might really hurt someone, she is very strong.
any suggestions? we wanna have her seen by a psychiatrist.

Shannon
