Diagnosis for the first time in an older child
My son is 14 and a half, i have always felt that there was something wrong with how he reacted to everything from the beginning of his life. He was always a very unhappy,unsettled baby and as the years have gone on i have noticed so many differences between himself and his brothers, and other children. No-one has ever taken me seriously and i began to think i was just a neurotic mother 'reading too much into things', however he has finally been assessed as he is struggling in secondary school and he definitely has this disorder.
I am extremely fearful for him though as every bit of information i can gather emphasizes on early diagnosis being the key to successfully treating him. Is it too late to undo all the damage that we have done by not understanding him better when he was going through all his obstacles, is the damage done already. I really hope not. Anyone who can advise me would be very much appreciated.
