right now we are pursuing private and school evaluations. i have mentioned sw at mental health place initially said cd. which most of you balked at. she also said no adhd. well having a sit down with-school sw and psychiatric they both laughed at the other sw and ridiculed the 'private' psychiatrist world as being too quick to diagnosis. boy this is going to be fun! private sw might be wrong but i can see her therapy of social stories and catching that difficult child doesn't recognize social cues is right on with-what i see at home. i guess i will just have to wait until the iep at the end of feb(just cuz the state says 30 days do they have to take the whole time? grr) and the psychiatrist evaluation the first wk of feb to see where difficult child falls. i will say thanks to the suggestion of the explosive child. it is really opening up husband's eyes to what i have been telling him about difficult child not doing things just to piss us off! so how do you get the rest of the world to change their mindset!
