I went to a very good child clinical psychologist today....Had the first parent interview/ background interview.....She did her phd in playtherapy and has 20 yrs experience....Wanted her to work a bit with my oldest son to help him with some cognitive skills to deal with his anxieties, social skills , anger management....self esteem...exct. She was very interested in all I had to say....Almost fainted when she heard that neuro said it was all manipulation......and almost fell of her chair when I said he also had a abnormal EEG in R temperal lobe! She said this can cause plenty of emotional regulation problems, auditory problems, visual disturbances...exct. She didnt make a diagnosis or something yet, but I could read between the lines that she strongly suspect bipolar disorder!!!! Psychiatrist didnt picture up on this...... I do see the depression....some hiper activity, but more constant irritibility.... She says we first need to sort out the neuro stuff....then she wants to talk with psichiatrist...she says she is not fully confinced about Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) allthough it could be dual diagnosis, then wants to work with neuro to work out plan of treatment..... I am still in shock! Any one with bipolar experience....Is there overlapping in symptoms with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)? Thanx!
