My son is 7 years old and was just unofficially diagnosed with asd. He also has anxiety which they have decided to treat with an antidepressant. He was evaluated by a psychologist who said he "likely" has the diagnosis but he doesn't like to attach a "label" to the child. I just feel overwhelmed as a mother. I am not sure how to handle his behavior. He is extrememly inteligent and has no problems in school except for being a distraction and difficulties with peer relationships. At home he yells, pesters his sisters, he is always loud, and does not follow through with anything we ask him to do. My husband and I have had so much contention between us because our lives feel like chaos! He never sits still unless he is submerged in his legos or drawing trains. I am just not sure how to be an effective parent. Especially when the dr. won't confirm a diagnosis!
