Feels like a long tough road of searching, fighting and questioning has reached it's final chapter....And I feel very tired and relieved! We had our assessment and interview with the new neurologist today....for a second opinion....after the previous one told us their is nothing wrong with my son and we need better parenting skills!!!! This dr was so thorough, gentle, loving and engaging with my son! Listened carefully to me and even had an Occupational Therapist (OT) who did screaning assessment. The verdict: She says she is 100% sure my son has Aspergers.....NOT ODD and NOT Bipolar! She even said this before she knew the psychiatrist suspected Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)! She is also requesting a 12 hour sleep EEG to be done, while video taping his sleep. She also suggested starting Risperdal, only one drop at night...increasing it to 2.5 ml over weeks...She wil contact the psychiatrist and later maybe stop the Cipralex(SSRI)... She also would like him to continue Occupational Therapist (OT) for SI..... I feel like we need to accept this diagnosis now and make peace with it......She said their is a specific test that takes 3 hours to do that can be done for AS assessment, but in our country having a diagnosis will not give us any benefits, so I dont see any need to put my son through any further stress!
