I have a 13 year old who has MH issues. He has been in and out of therapy, and on so many medications since was 4 years old. He has been hospitalized 5 times in 9 years. (psychiatric hospitals) He has been dignosed with ADHD, Tourette's, PTSD, OCD, Anxiety Disorder, and Reactive Attachment Disorder. All of which were withdrawn at one time or another throughout 9 years. My question is, how can I get him the help he needs b4 it is too late? He exhibits so many signs of Asperger's Syndrome, but they refuse to diagnose him with it and treat him as if he has it. WHY? I know that is what is wrong with him. He is currently in juvenile detention serving a 35 day sentence for truancy charges. Somebody please help before I lose my son, maybe forever!! Please!
