Another thought. Your son doesn't sound that ADHD. Besides the PDD, look up sites for Asperger's Syndrome and Autism. They are on the same spectrum as PDD, but have different features. You will notice the similarities and the differences. The strictly ADHD management strategies may not work, as I have hinted at on my other reply. Maybe he will be a mixed bag of things...a little hyperactivity, a little obsessive, a whole lot moody, etc.

Hang in there!


have a child psychiatrist but I am not real thrilled with him or the other 2 in the same office.We have already considered looking for another, but we will have to go out of town, as where we are, there is only one other to check out.
> Mike is alot different than alot of kids with this kind of disorder. For the most part he is so withdrawn, you wouldn't even know he is here, but then he just explodes when in a social situation, for no apparent reason. He is very aggressive with other children,which really scares me.I tend to stay away from places where smaller children might be present.
> It really limits us on places to go because he just doesn't do well at all when we go anywhere there are alot of people. That is why I am getting to where I am relying on the internet for information and just some support. It kind of isolates us from the world also, as people tend not to visit because they don't know how to handle him and it's hard to take him anywhere. We have very little family support and have exhausted our supply of babysitters!
> It's just nice to be able to "talk" to someone.Thanks!
