I am so frustrated at how many people are looking for a diagnosis of a 'disorder' if their kids are anything less brilliant academic geniuses with the manners of a prince. When did it stop being acceptable to be an average student. Its nice to be an A student, but average means right on track for your age - why isn't that acceptable now?? Kid has poor social skills - must be ASD, kid is hard to control must be ADHD. All these labels and excuses mean the kids who genuinely have a problem are lumped with kids who's parents aren't willing to accept their little angels aren't the champions they dreamt of. Can't be their fault, so lets say it's a diafnosis. There is a Mom in the ASD forum saying she can't diagnose online - WTF? she can't diagnose at all unless she's got eight years in that field and a few letters behind her name!!!!!
