I am new on this board. My son is about to turn 10 and displays several characteristics of asbergers at home and school. We have had him tested twice and they telll us that he has several characteristics of asbergers, they just need to defer the diagnosis at this time? We are so confused...why would they keep delaying it? What are they waiting for?
Right now he is on medication for bipolar, ADHD, depression and taking something to sleep because these doctors don't know what to diagnosis him as.
I personally think he has asbergers...he is much more comfortable at home and shows his "true colors". He has been suspended from school a couple of times a year since kindergarten for hitting and pushing all relating to not being "first" in line. He has an obsession with being first at everything. He has no friends and is in a social club with autistic children and does really well with the other children because he can relate to them. He eye blinks and has ticks. He is obsessed with math and numbers. He has angry outbursts if something doesn't go his way or his routine is changed. This is a just a few things...I could go on and on.
So any advice you all can give me, would be very helpful. We are at wits end and just feel so hopeless. I just wish I could get a diagnosis so we could get treatment for him.
