All, My husband and I are at our wits end. 12 year old difficult child behavior in the last eight weeks (since diagnosis of type one diabetes) has been horrible. Faked sickness, not paying attention in class, raging, crying, talking back...I could go on and on. From the information I have gathered here I believe I need to have him do the following tests. Neuro Physc and an Allergy test. (yes he has an iep at school but there is no diagnosis and I do not feel it is doing any good. I am going to try and hire an advocate to help me once we get the test results) Questions: Should I be doing any other kind of testing?? How do I find a GOOD Neuro Physc? How do I find a GOOD counselor once I have the results of the testing? I just got the book Explosive Child. I am half way through and there are a lot of things that I think will help. I just put a call into his pediatrian but when I have brought stuff up in the past he dismisses it a "normal". Well just yesterday the school told me they have never had anyone come into the office faking sickness as much as my difficult child. AND i know he is faking because he is 100% fine once he gets home. I just need your guidance and advise for what you did and what did or did not work. I am so desperate I want to help him (and us) because every day is getting worse.
