My son is 15. He has been diagnosed as ADHD, depressed, deaf, mildly retarded and one Dr. even told me that he needs a spanking. He is in public school at my insistance, though in the 4th grade, the school said that I should put him in a special home for kids like him. He is obsessed with animals and fishing. He has other physical challenges as well. He gets upset if our routine changes in the least. We are at our wits end with trying to get him the help that he needs. Does anyone know of a great Dr. in the South Dakota area who will help us find a specialist or anyone who will listen to us and our concerns? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!:(
