I am desperately seeking a recommendation for a *good* child therapist and psychiatrist in the Austin area. My 9-yr old grandson has been diagnosed with add, and he has lots of behavior issues. He's miserable and making everyone else in my house miserable. Situation is beyond dysfunctional. Two different counselors and one psychiatrist have made absolutely no difference. Can anyone recommend a professional who might really help, based on your own positive experience?

Have you asked the Dept of Special Education from the public school for help?

Thanks for your response, Sarah. I have gotten different referrals, from a doctor and from psych nurses, and once I got a counselor from a shot-in-the-dark internet search. None has been much help, unfortunately. And the psychiatrist made things worse, in fact. I'm hoping someone out there has a positive firsthand experience with someone involving their own child.

If you don't get a referral on this site: Try asking his pediatrician for a referral or call the nearest pediatric hospital.
