I'm new here so don't know all the jargon. Just looking for somewhere or someone with some helpful advice. Our son has been diagnosed with ODD and ADHD. He is 11 years old and is pretty good most of the time. I'm sure many of you know how this goes. Anyway, I was called by his teacher again today saying he was having more anger issues. We send him to a parochial school and they are not equipped to deal with a child with these issues. The principal, who has been there for like 35 years has said he has not had another child like my son. The principal says that he can't figure out a way to reason with him when he is angry. I really don't want to take him out of this school, since they do provide a fantastic education, but I'm starting to think he needs a little more specialized attention. He is on Adderal (sp?)for his ADHD. This seems to be working, but the ODD thing....does anybody have any advice. He is seeing a counselor every other week now. He seemed to make some big improvements for about a month, but now he seems to be going backwards a little.
