Hello my name is Samantha and I have a 8 year old that was diagnosed with ADHD when he was three. we are having a terrible time with him and hopefully this forum can give us some hope. Here is what I was going through last year and it is still the same. To add to this he is very defiant. No matter what we ask him or tell him to do he simply refuses. He argues with everyone on any subject and has become violent. Instead of arguing he has for the last few days just started hitting, pushing and kicking the other kids in the house. I am wondering what is going on. I am starting to feel he has more than adhd, maybe aspergers and ODD or Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED). Any in sight would be great.
