What do you mean you have been fighting to get him diagnosed? Does that mean you have been told he isn't ADHD or ODD and simply needs some discipline? Because I'm going to be honest, for some kids, that's exactly what the problem is - lack of discipline. Children with lack of discipline tick the boxes for ADHD and ODD too.

Another thing - have you tried adjusting his diet, certain foods in a diet can also cause (or increase) poor behaviour.
