So my friend, with the poor little 7 year old who can NOT get any help, finally put him in the hospital. And guess what? After one day, he is leaving. She called the nurse's station and found out that he was put on Seroquel. That's a good thing because he's hearing voices, although the nurse kind of indicated that she didn't believe it. She said "You know, kids hear things at night and think it's a ghost..." This isn't the case with this little boy. My friend was told her son would see a neuropsychologist, but guess that won't happen. When she asked the nurse why they are putting her on on Seroquel, what his diagnosis was, she said, "Oh, there IS no diagnosis." Tomorrow, after he comes home, he has to go to court. The Judge is going to remand her seven year old about threatening to hurt himself and others and will take further action if he does it again. My friend doesn't think that will do any good. She is hoping that the Judge also gets him in to see somebody who can really help him. So far she keeps getting the runaround from Social Services, and there are huge waiting lists for the area's NeuroPsychs. I think it's kind of silly to send a seven year old to court, especially one like this child. He is very "out of it." Whatever else is wrong with him, I believe Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is one of his problems (he lines up his toys constantly and is very quirky). I don't think he will "get" the judge's remand and I don't think he can change his behavior. Nor does my friend. He is starting out on 25 mg. and going to 50 mgs. Then he's going home. I can't believe how fast they throw the kids out of the hospitals and how dismissive they are of the parent's observations of their children. Just an update.
