It is not so much oppositional defiant if he is mentally retarded. The best way to deal with someone who exhibits these behaviors and is mentally retarded is to have a behavior plan in place. So basically he is going to have consequences for his actions and he will get rewarded for good behavior. If you need more info then let me know.
