My son is 17 yrs old, and has been diagnosed with ADD, PTSD and ODD. I do not think that the ODD part is correct. He does have Audio and Visual Processing disorder as does my 11 yr. old daughter and myself. We all suffer from sensory disorders, but my son gets very emotional at the drop of a hat. He thinks that he is always right and he always blames others for anything wrong in his life. He lies about everything, even when he knows that we know he is lying, he will not correct himself. He cannot adjust to even very slight changes in his schedule. He has to know in order each and every thing that we are doing or each and every place that we are going every day. If I tell him that I am going to take him somewhere or do something with him and then my ADHD (unmedicated) kicks in and I forget or do it out of order, he screams at me and tells me that I lied to him. Then he rants and raves and calls me stupid and retarded.
