My 9 year old son was re-evaluated last week so we could start medication to help with his ODD. His first evaluation was at age 3, diagnosed Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)-not otherwise specified, mild Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and ODD. When he was 7 he had several surgeries to correct sinus issues along with having his tonsils and adenoids removed. He was on a heart monitor loop and diagnosed with precordial catch syndrome and a slight heart murmur. He continued to have staph infection after infection because he would rub his hands and legs raw then constantly pick. I refused to medicate him for is disorders until January 2008 when he was diagnosed with ADHD...by then I figured that I was doing a disservice to him by not medicating. He has an IEP team and plan at school, a 504 plan for testing and has speech services to deal with fluency issues. He is an honor roll student despite his disruptive behavior but we are concerned without having something more concrete in his records that as he gets into middle school he will be kicked out. At home in the meantime, life has been hell. His behavior has been increasingly aggressive and he busted my husbands lip open in a fit a few weeks back. When I took him to be re-evaluated I expected them to confirm his prior diagnosis'. They did but they are now diagnosing ASPERGERS. I am heart broken. I don't feel like I'm ready to deal with this yet. We did get him started on abilify. I feel alone in researching this, my husband (his step-father) calls this ***-munchers disease. My sons biological father is abusive, refuses to be involved in anything that isn't fun, and he only sees son 3 times per year because he lives in a different state. I have 4 other children that need attention too and I feel drained after having to deal with my 9 year old. I don't know where to start when it comes to finding services...plus I feel so overwhelmed.
