Ask your school district who they use for early childhood intervention testing (In Colorado it is called Childfind). Also check with your county government office about resources for children with possible special needs. If all else fails, call your local Children's hospital and see what info they can give you of having your son seen by specialists to determine whether or not he has a traumatic brain injury or other problems that might be affecting his development.

I would deffently get him to a different doctor.It deffently sounds like there is more going on,If the doctor wont listen to you I would keep on till he does its your child and you are the one that knows whats best for him.

We mom know when somethings wrong. And it's just so darn grustrating when nobody listens! Time to find another dr, whether it's in the same town or you have to drive, find a new one. The Children's hospital as mentioned is a good place to start - they can direct you to the right path. Good luck!
