My daughter was been evaluated and pre-diagnosed for O.D.D (not officially) We need a behavior specialist. I went to our primary care place, their social worker/counselor/whatever the heck she is evaluated her, but can't have sessions with her because she isn't in our insurance network. She gave me NO suggestions as to where else to take my daughter. I have spent 3 days on the phone and google trying to find someone to take her to. Everyone I called doesn't work with kids under 12. I live my whole day in fear that my phone will ring and it'll be the school calling me to come get her because she threw a chair, or had a tantrum in the hall, or crawled under a table and won't come out. I called my husband in tears and we just wound up screaming at each other. FINALLY(!!!! )I got some names! 4 to be exact. Well I finally got a call back and 3 of the doctors I called are not taking any new patients. I finally found a doctor that was seeing new patients and kids under 12 but they needed a referral from our primary care. No biggie, they faxed it over on Friday. I called today because I hadn't heard from anyone and the lady tells me that she can't tell me anything, and referral coordinator will get back to me, they answer in the order received. Today my daughter got SUSPENDED for the FOURTH time this year. She tipped over a chair and hid under a table because she wanted a white board and her teacher told her no. I feel like the school is just fed up with her. The best part? She doesn't do this **** at home. She might roll her eyes, stomp her foot or slam her door but really what kid doesn't. I RARELY have to repeat myself. There are no full blown tantrums here. I feel like, these people at school went to college and got degrees to work with kids and they can't make my kid sit down at shut up? Really!? I get that it's more than that, but honestly thats what it feels like.
