We had a meeting with somebody from a non-profit who helps parents get preped for IEPs. When we were going over the issues she asked about multiple personalities!! Ugh. I don't think that's the issue, but it made me think that we defintily need more doctor evaluations. Over the summer she was given the diagnosis of Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)-not otherwise specified. In the past it was ODD. One of the issues we're dealing with is the constant lying. I'm not a liar (infact I'm too honest, make people mad about it), husband isn't and so it's not something she was taught. We give her every opportunity to come clean with no punishment and she still can't admit it, even if we show her the proof. It's this automatic reflex. I can't figure out why she's doing it or how to stop it. What causes it? She's so good at lying now that I can't tell if she's telling the truth or not. The multiple personality thing came up because we mentioned that she glazes over and gets this possessed look on her face. She's mentioned several times that something inside her made her do it (whatever she did bad). And sure, I could take her to a doctor, but the one psychiatrist I met here was really horrible and completely wrong in his diagnosis of her (gave her a low IQ when I know she jsut didnt' want to take the test, was trying to get me to allow her to have candy when she can't have food dye, never once approached Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), etc). We had her in therapy at age 4 and it didn't help at all, so I'm not eager to go that route again. Anybody have any ideas to explore about this?
