    We are going to get neuropsychologist next Monday. I am so looking forward to finally knowing exactly what is going on with difficult child.
    He is doing better on medications ... Strattera and Imipramine. However, I think he is probably Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and it has not been diagnosed yet. That part was conveniently left out of his "full" Special Education evaluation.
    They said it will last about 8 hours and the psychologist will talk to me that day with the final written report coming around a week later.
    I have been reading the OASIS guide to Asperger Syndrome and I am feeling hopeful. I am anxious to get the "official" diagnosis so we can focus on actully helping him.
