Hi- many of you have been so helpful and supportive with your advice. I now have my husband on board about getting a neuropsychologist. evaluation for difficult child and possibly medications. My quest. is can a neuropsychologist. prescribe medications or does he just get you a diagnosis and then refer you to a psychiatrist who is an MD who can dispense medications? Thanks again for all your time. I am trying to really get the ball rolling now and want to know what I have to do to best help difficult child and our family. Also, a few neuropsyhs I contacted say they do not accept any insurance? Is this the norm? I see psychiatrists and psychologists in my insurance book but not neuropscyhs. I hope I can even afford to do this!
