My son was diagnosed with ADHD when he was in grade 1 but I have always felt there is also something else wrong. I spoke with our family physician who referred him to a child psychiatrist. My gut feeling from what I have researched is that he also has Aspergers. (he "flaps" his arms, lines things up, obsessives with objects such as tires and birds, he has difficulty making and keeping friends) It breaks my heart because he is never invited to birthday parties and everyone always has an excuse why they can't come to his.
The psychiatrist sent out forms to me and the school a few months ago (these were the exact same ones I filled out 2 years ago)
Can anyone tell me what I can expect at this 2 hour appointment? Will they be able to make a diagnosis with that appointment?
