I have just joined today after a recommendation of your site.
We are a family of 7 - 3 children having ASN
1 confirmed ADHD as well as other issues
1 away to start the process at CAMHS
1 diagnosed with ODD at age 6.
We are now thinking the child with ODD has either been misdiagnosed or along with ODD may have PDA
I dont know much about PDA but over last few days have looked into it more & it is apparent she is showing numerous signs.
The dilema we have is that CAMHS in our area WILL NOT rcognise & diagonse this which makes it very difficult for us to get the right help & support
Just wondered if anyone has hit a barrier like this & what they have done to overcome it.
I must admit i dont like labels but it does help when looking for help & support
Many thanks for reading xx
