is it really ODD and ADHD? I am kind of new here, been reading for a few weeks but did not really want to post, until NOW. D, my son, was diagnosed with ODD with high risk of ADHD back in 2007 by a neuropysch. At the time, medications were NOT recommended as part of treatment, just therapy. Due to issues beyond my control, therapy was not able to happen. His SD has repeatedly told me that he is a little behind where he should be but not far enough behind for him to get any type of therapy. He really is a sweet and loving child, but he does NOT listen for anything. This summer has been H377 on wheels for me. He is extremely overstimulated and we really have no outlet to let that stimulation out. When he is told to come in for a break or for the night, it turns into a MAJOR meltdown. He also has had this thing lately that he must be where I am no matter what. I am at a loss about what to do. I am at the point where I called our pediatrician and told them how bad the behaviors are getting and that something needs to change especially with school starting soon. We see the doctor on 8/28. I told them I wanted to start him on the lowest possible dose of soemthing to bring him down some notches. I hope this made sense.
