My son is 5 years old and will be starting Kindergarten in the fall. He has always had attention, bonding, and behavior problems mostly regarding me. His father was a alcoholic, drug addict, was never able to keep a job, and at times abusive (only towards me, never the kids.) I also have a 1 year old. In August their father and I seperated. I took the kids and moved to an apartment nearby. I have full custody of the kids.
My son was diagnosed by a specialist with reactive attachment disorder in December. I had to take him to the specialist in the state of Washington as it is where my mom lives and I have been unable to find treatment for him in the D.C. area.
Does anyone have any experience in the area or know of any therapists or support of any kind ?
