11 yr. old with possible Sensory Processing Disorder
(orange county, california)
We have an 11 year son who we think has been misdiagnosed with 'general anxiety'. History: He cried nonstop as an infant, was diagnosed with acid reflux at 2 months old, started vomiting alot when 2 yrs. old and stopped eating many foods. Started to see a therapy group then was basically given up on and transferred to a child psychiatrist. He only eats french fries, chocolate milk, wheat bread, apples, fruit snack and some candies.
He was diagnosed with "general anxiety" at the age of 6 and was put on Prozac and we were told that he would grow out of it with age. We think that maybe he is going thru the wrong treatment. We recently found out that he has not been swallowing his prozac and has been secretly spitting it out. So he has not had medications maybe for 3 weeks. He is now going through a crisis and a emotional breakdown. PlEASE HELP - any ideas what to do ?
