Well we had an appointment today with the new psychiatric dr. He is stating that it sounds like onset childhood antisocial personality disorder!! he say's that there is no iep available for antisocial personality disorder. There is no treatment for antisocial personality disorder. He stated that it really becomes a situation for the law!! How can this be? no treatment and he says that there is no conscience and no willingness to help themselves. Wow I feel so lost even more now. He said they will hold him in this therapeutic group home and the psychiatric dr will see him every monday. He recomended reading the sociopath next door. difficult child was very forthcoming and seemed almost proud of what he has done. He thinks he is only going to be at the group home for a week(more like 90 days) so this is probably why the good reports are coming in. He will find out tomorrow that he will be there for the long length of time and go to school there. My concern is if there is no treatment what do we do? If the dr's can't help him we have to have this difficult child become a criminal?? something just don't sound right!! Where do we place a child who has this horrible diagnosis if the dr's cant help him and he can't live at home? No professional can tell us the answer to this question other than let the police be involved or turn him over to the state and face charges of neglect and abandoment. This is so horrible!! Thank you all for being here I don't know what I would have done without all of your support.
