My son was diagnosed with Adhd in the beginning of Kindergarten for hyperactivity. Then he started showing learning disabilities. Next he developed vocal tics and hand flapping which are more prevalent when anxious or overstimulated. He also has social isssues making friends etc.. doesnt get social cues or jokes so next was clinically diagnosed with aspergers and tourettes. He has severe goofy behavior and irritates the whole family. He is taking respiradol for aspergers and focalin xr for adhd but still shows symptoms and has meltdowns violent at times as well. He struggles with math and reading comprehension. He may be retained this year. I have taken all the routes to diagnosis second opinions and so forth but no one seams to be able to give advice and everything is contradicting among psychiatrist. Help!
