My oldest has a very severe form of ADHD.  Most people think oh that is not a special needs child. My child is. He has to take 3 different kind of medications daily. One for concentration issues, one for the hyperness and one is to help him sleep at night. He gets agitated very easily if he can't understand why something doesn't work the way he wants it to.  He is in behavorial therapy, also.  He is doing better on the new medicine than he was his old medicine. So, no he might not look like he is special needs, but he is. Just a different form of special needs.   IF YOU ARE JUST GONNA BASH, YOUR COMMENT WILL BE DELETED.

First of all, welcome to the group!  Your child is definitely special needs mama, so you don't have to be defensive in this group...we welcome all kinds of special needs!  

FYI - Only CM admin can delete comments, but you won't find any bashing in this group...I promise:)

I feel you mama!  My dd has selective mutism and very few people actually get it.  Hugs!

Welcome to the group. Is therapy helping his behavior? We see a behavior therapist as well not for ADHD although my twins are ADHD. ODD is the reason for therapy with us. Mine dont look special needs either but have a long list of things wrong witg them.

Welcome to the group! I just have one question, did you post somewhere else and get attacked by the people there? Too many don't understand or in most cases I feel that they DON'T WANT to understand. Here we understand exactly what you are going thru. My little one doesn't look special needs but she is. I get people that give the look like she is nothing but a babied spoiled brat.

shake hand

Again Welcome to the Group!

My autistic 4 year old looks "normal," so people assume he's a brat or that I'm a bad parent.  Or both.  It is hard sometimes.
