Hello, I am brand new to this board. My son has ODD. He was diagnosed at age 4.5. He is 6 now. He is in the first grade and I have yet to tell my school about his diagnosis. Last year when he first started kindergarten I felt comfortable enough to tell our principal as he is a friend. He did ask if I had put this on his record or not, and told him no, wasnt sure that I am ready. Its just he doesnt have anything else with it. He was tested for ADD and ADHD...nothing. So I am hoping he will grow out of this by 9 or 10, like the studies show. he isnt on medications. it just cuz i dont want him labeled, but then again i dont like teh way teh teacher this year is acting. she is real old school and keeps hinting around about spankings and its just rediculous. But then again, from everything i have read about ODD its rarely not accompanied by another diagnosis, right? so, maybe teh child psychologist was off on my son??? I just dont know really what i should do. he also is top of his class, very smart little boy which is odd for ODD, they usually have learning disabilities. he just gets bored, while everyone else is working and he starts picking on ppl, making trouble. any info would help.
