My son 3 1/2 was recently diagnosed with autism and a consideration of ODD. I thought it was just ADHD, but boy was I wrong. I thank you all so much though. I didn't log on, but I have been reading every night what you all write for the past 6 months. It helped get me ready for everything. I feel like I'm really on the right path and I wasn't broadsided by the diagnosis. I really feel educated because of you guys, so a big giant THANK YOU!!! So, he was diagnosis by the school district ( per my request) and now they've referred him to the Kaiser autism clinic nearby. I also registered him with the county to receive services. Tomorrow we will start him on Tenex to help calm the anger and tantrums. Then, maybe we can reach the teachable little boy inside. Any thoughts on Tenex? I've read a few threads here and seem to see many positives. Again, thank you all for blazing a trail and smoothing the path for me and the others who will follow behind us. We are giving our kids the chances that our parents never dreamed of.
