Jennifer Christopherson - Mother
(Eagan, MN USA)
It is a crime that this is not a DSM recognized disorder. This is the ONLY diagnosis that fits my child and, yet, I tolerate others so that my child can get the services that he needs. Why can't we just call this what it is? It breaks my heart that we must hide behind other diagnoses to get special education, occupational therapy and speech therapy. I/We am/are not ashamed of our child and his issues, why doesn't the medical community support our child and our efforts to do the very best I/We can for him?
