hi everyone, my 5yo son has 'layered' issues as the mental health unit say.
He has speech and language impairment, fine and gross motor skill impairments and behavioural issues. I have been seeing the royal childrens hospital for 2.5 years and hes being seeing a child development team also. I have also taken him to a private child psychologist.
To make things simple EVERY proffessional has said he has adhd but they dont want to 'label' him for a few more years.
As his mother I have tried and researched every natural thing possible without anything working. He is seriously delayed in most things.
I am frustrated because I cant find someone who will 'label' him (I'm using there terminology) I feel he will improve quite quickly if he would be able to concentrate and stay still. I am at my last tether and have decided to move from natural to meds. Does anyone know of a paediatrician in Brisbane who wont string out the obvious and start treatment. I dont want him to get behind in school more than he already is.
Thanks in advance.
p.s I know this topic is debatable whether children with adhd should be on meds or not. If you are a natural supporter any ideas (cross fingers ones I havnt tried) and have any other ideas please let me know
