My undiagnosed child....???

by Pam Smith
(Richmond, KY USA)

My son displays unusual characteristics of many different disorders, but not enough of any one of them to have a definitive diagnoses for his odd behaviors.

He went to Cincinnati Children's Hospital for over a year and saw psychologists, OT's, PT's, mental health professionals...etc...!! We went home with, "we've never seen anything like him". No confirmed diagnosis has since been given to him professionally.

My son's school labels him with a learning disability so they can provide him with services. I go to yearly IEP/ARC mtgs. to discuss his progress and how he is doing in school.

Is there some where I can go to get more information on what is going on inside his head?? Is there anyone who can give us a disability by name that he resembles??

Thanks for any help you can provide me.
