    Default Just finished at the Paed

    I'm still finding my way around so apologise if this is the wrong place.

    Just finished at the Paed, i really didn't expect to walk away with an OCD, ADHD & ASD child

    Feeling a bit flat & I've tried calling mum & DF but ones answering.

    Tell me about it! Was a big shock! i was not expecting anything from the first visit. Probably didn't help that DD spent the whole time leaping around the office responding to her questions by babbling nonsense. She's sick which always makes her behaviour worse but I am glad that most of our apps have been on bad days so they can see what I am talking about.

    She said defiantly OCD. her sensory issues all seem to be OCD related not ASD (which was a surprise but made sense) She also said high possibility of ADHD AND ASD which will continue to be assessed/monitored.

    We defiantly do not have a formal diagnosis. Dd needs her ENT procedure, a on site social assessment @ her pre-school & I suspect many more psyc apps before they can give any formal diagnosis but still.. In a way it's a relief & in another way it's so disappointing.

    I thought the same thing.

    It sounds like quite a full on diagnosis for one appointment. Did they mean that your child potentially has these, or they definitely have them?

    ETA: Sorry, I just read your other post!

    Defiantly OCD
    Potentially ADHD ASD

    I was suspecting ASD & I knew she was 'a bit' hyperactive. Don't know guess I was expecting just a chat & thought I had her figured out & I'm just trying to get my head around it/how to deal with her.

    Do you think I should get a second opinion?
