I'm a newbie. My difficult child was just diagnosed with ODD. We had an extremely hard time getting him to go in for a 1st consultation with P. I know we will not be able to get him back for therapy. He has no insight into his ODD. Last yr was a disaster at school. Absolutely no respect for his principal. Almost always refuses to accept responsiblity for his bad behavior. Called the princ. extremely inappropriate names. He never studies, nor has he ever but continually gets very good grades. This yr he is post-secendary student at a local college with only one class at the high school (much to the relief of his principal)but he continually misses classes because he over-sleeps. He has a wide circle of friends that he gets along with very well. He needs to be around them constantly. He has been active since he was 6 mo. old and even was disobiediant in pre-school. He can not slow down! He will not get a part-time job like his friends. Actually, I think he may have anxiety about it but will not admit it. My main concern is how will he act when he gets to college. How can we help him? We have so little time left with him and have not had much success with anything we have tried so far. Sorry that this is so long.
