I have been reading your board for a few months and I can't "lurk" any longer, even though I am not sure this is where we belong. My DS, 7, currenly has no diagnosis (except hypotonia.) He is seeing a psychologist who thinks he has ADHD but has also given me a book re. Asp. Syn. He is just starting OT for SI type issues, as we were turned away by the IU when he was four :( In the fall he will be in first grade and will have an IEP. He has some kind of auditory processing problem also. And to top it all off, he is very anxious, especailly now. I was reading an earlier post about kids who need to know where you are all the time. I have a shadow, too, and it is making me crazy. It is the absolute worst at bedtime!!
I'll spare you all the details, but I am so confused about what is going on with him. I so want to do the right thing and make all the right decisions. I don't know if I want a diagnosis or not. I feel like all we do is go to appointments and therapy. And I feel like I am neglecting my very darling 5 yr. old daughter.
Sorry to whine...I hope you understand. This too shall pass. Thanks so much for "listening."
