I thought I would share our feedback from clinical psychologist/ playtherapist regarding difficult child assessment....I know some other parents was wondering about bipolar/ ODD/ Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in their kids! Ok.....she explained to us the indicators that came out during play, assessment exct....very interesting! The conclusion she made was Mood dysregulatory disorder! She says he might have traids of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), but he was able to build very good relationship and resiprosity with her....So there is more going on than possible Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)! Dont know if its good or bad but she is absolutely sure he does NOT have ODD! Says he has to many mood issues going on! She also wants to clarify the EEG, because the abnormalities was in the R temporal lobe....the area responsible for mood regulation ( Agh, silly neuro who said my child was just manipulative!) We are seing new neuro on Thursday! She thinks he has definite consentration problems, but NOT ADD! She says he most propobly would benifit alot by starting a anti convulsant to help stabilize mood and possible epilepsy....She says the line between therapeutic dosage and toxic is very thin with these type of medications....that we must keep a mood diary and monitor carefully the dosages and not just stop the medications if its not working, because maybe the dosage is just to high! She recommended that after this is sorted out, THEN we look at whats left, if we need SSRI or something for concentration.... She will also see him every second week for guidance, not therapy....and work with us as parents. She said that she will NEVER give up on a child! And that she will keep trying till we see results!
