My son was diagnosed with PDD nov of 08. since then he has been put on Tenex for his aggression. that has HELPED alot! However when his dad and i tried to get him into a special needs preschool they told us there was NO way he was PDD because he was to "normal" WHAT?!?!?! of course they do not see the issues we have with him at home. i am now fighting a battle with the school system. Both his Riley Dr. and his peds. dr. agrees he dose have PDD and he is very HIGH on the spectrum. i guess my question is what to do now... ALSO we are being pushed to see all these drs. I know myself and hubby are VERY overwhelmed with all the drs. PLUSE our Oldest and our twins(1.5) I can only imagine how my 3 year old feels.. Is all these Dr. necessary??? or is it just a way for others to cash in on the autism world?? Sorry i know that sounds VERY negative but that is how i am feeling! would i be a terrible mother if i simply said NO MORE! and just go to his specialist and peds dr.
Thanks so much!
