You need to help him regulate his emotions. He may be more sensitive than other children hence he must be getting so irritated. Try to understand why he is getting irritated. Is his self esteem good? Is he comparing himself with others. Here ou can help him by pointing out his strengths. When he gets angry/irritated, stay with him, remain calm. After a few minutes go down to his level and tell him,' I understand that you are angry. it is ok to be angry but it is NOT ok to be aggressive with others. let me help you.' Allow him to express. Teach him to deep breathe when eh gets angry or punch a pillow when he gets home. Drinking water when he gets angry also helps. Next time when he listens to your guidance and behaves well, praise him and reward him with a small treat like allowing him to play for an extra 30 minutes. You remaining calm will help him to learn the right behaviour. A lot of positive talk is needed here. Set proper routine using his help for meal time, play time and study time. Try these concentration techniques: 1. Ask him to circle the letter 'e' from a passage. 2. If he likes to listen to music, play an instrumental piece and ask him to listen the non dominant instrument. 3. Doing a puzzle/ scrabble/ crossword. 4. Colouring/painting 5. Spotting differences in pictures. I hope this helps.
