To hard to handle


(Lawton,OK.)

I have a 7yr old son that is to hard to handle. He has ADHD and has extreme behavior problems. He has been kicked out of daycare because they can't control him. He takes medication for it,he also takes medication for his behavior,but it doesn't seem to work. Every time i take him to the doctor i have to wait 2or3 hours just to see the doctor. I can't seem to get anywhere. My son has fits that are just crazy,one second he will be okay and the next second he will fly off the handle and start crying,screaming will not listen to anything i have to say,he will start yelling louder.


Sometimes he will start throwing things,he also hurts his self,he has scratched his face up,and punched his self in the face and blacked his eye.When he's in school he spends most of his time in the reflection room because of his behavior.He's in IEP classes because he has developmental delays,but he is pretty smart.I don't know what else to do i've thought about putting him in a behavior hospital,but i really don't want to do that i want him home with me.

Definitely, get the right diagnosis for your child. This sounds severe, where he can really hurt someone. I know it's hard, and a long process, but, when you finally get your child on the right path, he will be like a different person. And trust me, it doesn't seem like it now but your circumstances will improve and be normal....well as normal as could be with this situation, but, never the less it will improve and you'll get your sanity back i promise! Hang in there and fight this all the way! Good luck and you can E-mail me if you want to vent, i will be glad to listen.

My son has the same issue but he is three. I was fortunate to get a good behavior specialist that knew that my son was SPD sensory dysfunctional and not ADD or ADHD. My therapist told me how lucky I am to have found out early if I was to have been to another specialist and they misdiagnosed him then the ADD medications wouldn't have worked and I would have had the same issues out of him and eventually led to increasing the medication dosage on the childs medication. The increase would only zone him out and make him seem lifeless and that isn't what the medication was designed to do. I would suggest to my primary care physician to see a occupational therapist so they can test him for sensory developmental issues.
