Child with oppositional defiance disorder

Hi there,
I am hoping for some help with some fresh ideas on how to manage a child with additional needs. I have sought information from websites but hoping for some practical strategies.
This child is 8 yrs old and has oppositional defiance disorder and sometimes become aggressive towards children and/or educators at our OOSH. The anger may come from a lego piece not fitting correctly or another child touching the lego box. He does not transition well, even with reminders and cues. The family is very supportive and collaborative. Are there any strategies or methods that you could recommend? I’ve heard there’s a strategy used called social stories, has anyone implemented these or could give more advice? Also, are there any links for families to seek support that you may know of?
