My difficult child 2 is NOT in a good place right now. His medications aren't helping at all, so we're trying to get a 2nd opinion with-another psychiatrist about what our alternatives might be. Also, our therapist gave us the name and number of a neuropsychologist. I called them and the intake person would NOT even do an intake for me!! She told me she needed to know exactly what the testing is for. I have NO idea! I told her the therapist referred me to them (they're in the same hospital system) and after we go through the intake form, maybe she'd have an idea of the testing needed or maybe they could contact our counsellor for that information. Nope. I told her my son's diagnosis's, and she told me they don't test for emotional problems. She told me they test for problems in school with-learning and such. I told her my son is gifted so he has no problems with-learning that I know of, but that maybe there was something else going on. And back and forth and back and forth we went. She refused to even start the process for me. I'm furious! She told me to call my counsellor back and ask her WHAT she's recommending the testing for and then call them back. Is this the way it should be? I'm feeling very disheartened at the moment. It'll be months before we get in for the 2nd opinion with-the psychiatrist and I can't even get the ball rolling on the neuropsychologist testing. Does neuropsychologist testing not apply to kids with-ADHD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and ODD? I thought that's what many of you here deal with and have had neuropsychologist testing done for these issues. Because my child is smart, does that mean he doesn't qualify for this kind of testing?
