What can the teacher do to help my son stop self injuring himself when frustrated in school?

Posted by Aharon

I need advice on how to get my 8 year old son diagnosed with PDD-NOS to stop injuring himself.  When frustrated he has been known to hit himself in the head, bang his head against a wall, bit off the skin on his fingers & pick at the skin on his arms.  His teacher is asking for suggestions of how to deal with this behavior & I don't know what to tell her.  It's different dealing with it at home one-on-one vs. school with one teacher & a classroom of 28.  Any advice is greatly app
