Well, the appointment went great! We finally have a dr there on our side who doesn't think all of zacks problems are nothing. The last time we were there they told us he was not on the spectrum. They gave us no other information or help or other options. This dr listened to us, read over all the reports and evals we have and agreed that there is definitely something off. He did suggest training to help us be able to respond better to the outbursts. He also said we do need to continue the testing and following all the trails until we find the link. He said it could be aspergers, ADHD, odd, or some other mental health or personality issue. Being that he's 6.5 now and the outbursts are getting worse and more frequent, we should be able to find something sooner rather than later now.
Thank y'all for your prayers and encouragement. We may finally be starting to get somewhere! It's only taken 3 years!

He'll see one at his next visit. After his last visit I called back and immediately requested a second opinion with a different doctor that was reccomended to us. We're on her wait list but still have at least 6 months before we reach the top. So that will be a complete team evaluation and I'm hoping she'll help us find answers instead of just saying "no, I don't think he's on the spectrum. Have him retested for ADHD in a few years." Not helpful

I am happy for you.

I think I am right where you were 2 1/2  years earlier.
