Anger and Aggression

According to Mind 'Anger is a natural response to feeling attacked, injured or violated. It's part of being human; it's energy seeking expression. Our anger can be our friend. It helps us survive, giving us the strength to fight back or run away when attacked or faced with injustice. In itself, it's neither good nor bad, but it can be frightening.' Unfortunately some people with autism become angry and aggressive very quickly and find it hard to deal with.
