Hello. I am new here. I have a 5 year old son who has been diagnosed with Asperger's by a school Phsycologist. However, I took him to see a specialist and she said she does not believe he has it. I just want to know what is wrong with him. His behavior is not normal. I will give an example of what he does. When he gets angry, he will hit and kick me, the walls, the door, throw stuff, bang his head against the wall, and scream. I mean, just the word "no" will set him off. Making him come in the house is murder. He will refuse to go in so I have to pick him up and when I do that, he will scream to the top of his lungs and he will kick, and kick and kick until I bring him inside. I'm surprised that no one thought he was being kidnapped. He also has no sense of danger. He will run out in the street without thinking. He did that at Chuck E. Cheese for his birthday. He ran under the red rope and ran out the door and almost run into the highway. I had to install a dead bolt on the front door and fix the windows where they won't open. He can't sit still, he doesn't listen to directions, he's always on the go, he has a very short attention span, he's always in time out at school. Sometimes I think he does things on purpose just to irritate me. I got a referral to a place here called Daysprings which is a Behavioral Clinic. I should get a call from a Therapist by the end of the week with an appointment. I hope that they can diagnose him with something. I can't stand not knowing exactly is wrong with him. I know this is not normal. He also has some developmental problems. What does this sound like? I really need help!
