So ive noticed problems in my 6 yr old sons behavior so i decided to have him tested. he had an eeg and phsycometric testing. the outcome was he has adhd,aspergers and impulse control disorder which i had never heard of but i googled it and it says as the child gets older they get worse. i have him set up for phsycology therapy and occupational therApy and im in the process of getting him an iep for school. Im just dumbfounded how did this happen? What did i do wrong

You didn't do anything wrong.

Just whatever you do, don't let up on discipline now just because he has been "labeled". He needs consistency now more than ever.
I have a "friend" who's dd got labeled and diagnosed with all this stuff, so now she uses those things as excuses for why she can't discipline her dd. I've seen it first hand as I have lived with her before.

This exactly. There's nothing "wrong" with him and you're getting him the help he needs. If everyone works together, he should be very successful (in school and in life).

Quoting Junebaby18:

YOu didn't do anything wrong.

Have they tested him for a gluten intolerance? Or perhaps a food dye sensativity?
