I have been posting over the past few days about Jacob being violent and moody etc. Well, I have my first IEP meeting tomorrow so I was reading over his diagnosis report to just farmiliarize myself with it better. (As if I haven't read it 20 times already) But as I was reading it today under the diagnosis column it read all of his other diagnoses and then very last it says "possible disruptive mood dysregulation disorder". Now, I don't know how I missed this all the times I have read it, but I did. Anyway, I immediately googled it and it is the equivalent of Bipolar Disorder. It is much harder to diagnose bipolar disorder in children so they get the DMDD dx. From what I gather from his dx report and my research the only reason he didn't get dx with it is because the symptoms have to show up in more than one setting and at the time school was out so the only setting was at home. Now, he is at school and the symptoms have shown up there too.
Have any other mamas dealt with this or their kiddos been dx with it?
