It's so confusing and frustrating to know that there is something going on with your child and not being able to pin point it. My son just turned 5 this week, but going on almost 3 years we have had the worst possible problems with him.
My pediatrician finally referred me to a specialist a few months ago after i scheduled an appointment with her for myself and just broke down.
I have kept a diary of every action, reaction and behavior of his for going on three years and for the life of me nothing has started to work or make sense. The final straw was having to call the squad for my 2 year old daughter when her brother knocked her out.
We have been seeing he specialist now for 3 months, and have gotten no where. We have been going every Thursday morning for 3 months and he acts out so much while we are there that we haven't gotten anywhere. He'll sit in the office and scream at the top of his lungs for the entire hour and a half that we are there. He bit the therapist, got on her desk kicked things off of it... I'm beginning to think that there is no hope. the specialist wants to do testing on him ... but he is being so uncooperative that we have been unable to get anywhere with this.
She printed off this entire site for me and asked me to go through things, also gave me information on autism, aspergers, and adhd, and took my diary of him for her reading in hopes to get somewhere. I'm reading through all of these sites and just getting more and more worried because all of it fits. ALL of it fits. I have no idea what to do or where to go next and I really am losing hope.
