Aggressive behavior is not indicative of ADHD. Three-year-olds are at a stage in their development when they are learning to manage the strong emotions that accompany frustration of their wishes. They require sound limit-setting around aggressive behavior, and the pre-school program should be firm in setting limits on him, including a plan for discipline (e.g., time out) if he displays any aggressive behavior.
