    Hi Kristy~
    Nice to meet, but sorry it has to be here. I have a 10 year old son that hasn't been diagnosed yet but I'll be shocked if he's not ADD/ADHD. They already list him as ODD, which I'm told really isn't a disorder. In my opinion it's just another way of saying he doesn't listen and do as he's told. Anyway, as far as the pyschologist goes, if it was me I'd get another opinion else where and keeping looking til I find someone that's willing to take an interest and help at least get you on the right track. More knowledgable people will be along shortly with great advice for you, I'm sure. In the meantime hang in there and know that you're among friends here.

    Hi Kristy. You son sounds like my daughter. I wrote a recent post about her. I think it is weird that a child psychologist would think 5 is too young!
