My son is 10 an has been statmented at school since yr 2, i took him doctors when he was young because he was always slower, never intreased in toys an often quite impulsive beahviour,
For the last four years he has seen a ped, to which which i have had no joy of a dignosis, he is on action plus at schhol an his reading an writting age is 5 yrs, he was tested for adhd an was naughty when we went to the cahms, but when the went into school they said he was fine, so the ped has just told me it's learning diff go away do a paernting course an deal with the beahviour i think this is wrong i def think he has something wrong,we again went for a adhd dign but his new teacher at school did not score the questionaire high enuff so again that failed.
I will give a description of his beahviour, he is voilent towards me, my mum, and other famliey, he picks an chosses who he likes before you have even said hello, he does not know right from wrong, pabics if anything is changed, struggles to bath himself, and we often get pooed smeard everywere, he wets the bed (medcine does not agree with him), anything we take him out to do is boring an rubbish, he does not play with toys, an is allways more suited to playin with 4 yr olds, he often just shouts things out this can be words to just noises, is not affectionate will just about give his little brother a kiss or cuddle, and is often rude to people when out shopping/ or just out
He has got hyper moblity an poor co ordination
If anyone could give a bit of advise course i seem to be fighting a loseing battle as the ped/ docs dont want to help, i have jst asked to b refered bk to his ped as i do not agree that he jst has learning disablitys?????????
