I feel as if we are finally making progress. difficult child was given another computer test for ADHD and this time he failed miserably. He is definitely ADHD like we thought. Shame on his former therapist for saying it was "all in his head" and if he really WANTED to he could focus just fine. Luckily we didn't waste too much time on her. Anyway, he prescribed a medication I've never heard of. It's called Intutiv. It is not a stimulant, as I did not want him to be placed on one of those. I researched Intutiv online. It says it usually takes up to two weeks before it starts working, so we shall see. psychiatrist gave us some questionaires for his teacher to fill out weekly so he can monitor his progress. One side effect I read about kinda freaked me out a lil bit. It can cause a dangerously slow heart rate. This has me worried a little bit, but I am going to try my hardest not to think of the worst possible scenerio. psychiatrist also highly suspects Asperger's and he even went as far as writing down the diagnostic code on piece of paper to give to the school. He has recommended an IEP and I emailed the school psychiatric today asking if they would begin the process. She emailed me back and said they would begin the testing as soon as they received the report, which his teacher will be getting tomorrow. I have to say although I'm a little surprised at the autism diagnosis, I'm not really all that shocked (I thought if he had it they would have caught it earlier) but he seems to have many of the signs. psychiatrist gave me an Asperger's questionaire to fill out, and I was surprised at how many of the symptoms fit difficult child to a T. Some of his teachers in the past have suggested that he may be on the autistic spectrum, but I wouldn't allow myself to believe it. I guess I was in denial. I was surprised when difficult child admitted that he is very awkward in social situations and he has a hard time with friends. I didn't really think he had that much insight to his behavior. He surprises me all the time. Anyway, I feel like we are finally making progress and that is a good thing.
