My dd was diagnosed with adhd about a year ago. they put her on medications and we didn't see a single change. well we don't have her on meds on the days she doesn't have school (something her doctor said is ok). well she was acting wierd and scared to go to school when it came to going to school and we have been having conference after conference with the teachers and the principal and they have been watching and seeing nothing negative minus her spacing out. We talked to her last week and it turns out the meds were making her hallucinate. we took her to her doctor to see what we can do, the doctor sent us to a pshychiatrist who confirmed with a few tests that she doesn't have adhd, she definately has OCD (which you can't take adhd meds if you have ocd cuz it will make the anxiety much much worse) and he said she has some form of CDD. they know its not autism because she didn't exhibit any signs until after the age of 3. i feel bad just sending her to school not knowing whats going on, but her teacher knows whats going on and is being sensitive to her meltdowns and outbreaks so far (she's only gone to school 3 days without meds so far). I'm just so lost, does anyone have special needs kids? i'm currently taking a love and logic class so hopefully i can learn some helpful stuff through that.
