Aggression and anger is a part of growing up in individuals with Down’s syndrome. This is usually the result of not being able to do things their peers can or partial realization of their limitations. Usually counseling and therapy helps. Also, identifying the triggers of aggression and avoiding these triggers or diverting attention to something he enjoys would help overcome this. However, it is important to consult his treating doctor. Take care!
