My Story:
when my son was 5 he started school the 2nd day of school i was called up to the school because he hit his teacher by the time I got there he was curled up in a ball crying and saying I want my mom I thought to myself that it was a one time thing But i was wrong I was getting calls all the time so I took him to a doctor they told me that my son had ADHD and ODD so I thought to myself ok I now have a answer to what is going on with him then he went into the first grade he would not really talk at all you could ask him something and it was like he did not hear you most days at school he was up in the office because he would just curl up in a ball and stay that way if he did not want to walk he would just plant his feet and you could not get him to move at all so I took him back to the doctor and he was put on Focalin he took it for a year but I have now took him off of it because he stoped making eye contract with you and he started grunting at you and would not do anything just sit there until the meds wore off and that was not my son so I went back to the Doctor again and I said I don't think that he has ADHD and ODD I think it is something different so I had him tested for autism and I was told that she was tempted to put him in that autism spectrum in conjunction with reports from home and the ADOS but hesitate's because she thinks that the temperament with anxiety and language problems may be doing a mimic of autism But when I look at the ADOS he is in the spectrum and I don't know what to do for him or where to go for help
