My son is 7 years old and has been diagnosed with ADHD co morbid ODD. But lately I am beginning to question if we have the correct diagnosis. He has been on five different medications and none have worked. His Psychologist now wants to start trying anti depressants. We have decided to stop all medications at this time and are switching to a different doctor for a second opinion. My mom is an RN and has said from the time that he was age two that he shows signs of Autism. I have done some of my own research and he fits the profile for Aspergers. I have talked to his therapist and she agrees with my non professional diagnosis. We have an appointment with a new Psychologist in two weeks, my question is this how do I go about getting testing and is there any for this disorder? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
