and it was like taking a breath of fresh air, finally someone who understands and agrees that E's behaviors are quite concerning. But I am completely overwhelmed about navigating resources. She recommended that he be seen by a child psychiatrist. E has been diagnosed with ADHD which may be a root for all his issues. it is agreed he could benefit from medication, but with his other issues, she thinks someone well versed in the meds would be better to prescribe. I called my oldest DS's psychiatrist and he isn't taking new patients, they are going to ask him if he will take on E since he sees his brother. I did call the emergency psychiatric unit again for resources, someone is coming out friday to reopen his file. What really worries me is that this is an area I know nothing about and fear there are programs or resources that would benefit him and I just don't know it. But I guess starting with a psychiatrist and getting a diagnosis is step one. Not really looking for any input here, just babbling. Overall I was pleased with the developmental pedi and hope she comes through with getting E what he needs.
