Are they actually diagnosed by a doctor? Or are you going off web md? Seems like everyone and their mother has something wrong with them.

Something is wrong with my child, but at 5, they're dragging their feet and still haven't diagnosed him fully. I don't call him anything but special needs. He gets occupational & physical therapy. He's in special needs classes in school. I'm at the school daily trying to find something out and still I've gotten no where. I wouldn't say my child is special needs if he wasn't. It's not like I didn't wish he were like everyone else sometimes. They say he's on the Autism spectrum, but still no solid diagnosis. I'm at a loss and wont give up until the Dr or someone can tell me what the hell is going on with my child.

It took almost 3yrs and a team of doctors and therapists to dx my son as bipolar w/manic depression, anxiety and ocd, and possibly adhd(this one I don't believe).
