The appointment with the child psychiatrist went well. Finally someone that would talk to me! We spent about 2 hours with her and I liked her. She said difficult child definately has ADHD but totally disagrees with the Opositional Defiance Disorder (ODD) diagnoises. A lot of his frustration is coming from the ADHD. She said he does have some sort of mood disorder but it is hard to determine in a short amount of time exactly what the disorder is. She said he has self esteem issues and he is not happy (I knew this). He also needs to develop social skills (I knew this too). She added a medication to what he is already taking. One that will help him sleep and is a mood stabelizer. It's called Rispudel (sp?) She also recommends counseling for him to see what is going on in that little head of his. I hope we are on the right track now. She also mentioned not to push the reading. Encourage him but when he gets frustrated, drop it. he will come around in his own time.
