Angry Toddler, Bipolar?

Patient : I am not sure where to go with this but i feel i have nothing to lose by trying here. I have a just turned four year old girl and there is something wrong with her mentally. She freaks out over the smallest things, throws screaming fits for hours, refusal to get dressed. wont let go of the bottle or any attempt to potty train. she doesnt even talk, i hear her at times say a few words but once she notices someone watching. she stops. She has this own private language and wont use anything else. Every approach i perform is met with high spirited angry power. If i try to move her to a sippy cup, she will get violent, throw things and will refuse to eat, period intill her bottle is returned. i cant get her dressed to even go outside to even see a doctor. i dont know what she got but i dont know what else i can do. is there anything you can point me in the direction to? -Lost and Scared Father-
