This is my first post, but I have been reading some of the board for few weeks. Our son is 13 and from the info I can get my hands on, I believe is textbook ODD. We've done off and on counseling the past 5 years. Last year, we were seeing a psychotherapist that we really liked. After 7 months of visits, I brought up the possibility of ODD qualities in our son. Right away, the psychotherapist dismissed it as another label, like ADD/ADHD. I can't disagree more. We were at the end of our visits with this therapist as he said there wasn't any more he could do for us but refer to a psychiatrist. Currently, we are having a good day. However, as anyone knows with kids like this, that can change in a moment's notice. I would appreciate anyone's advice and suggestions! Thanks!
