My DS who is 3, has been dx with SPD and expressive and receptive speech delays a little over a year ago. Therapies and all that jazz started. He was seen by devel peds about a year ago for first time. She agreed with SPD and speech. States she didn't have concerns over ASD, but too early to rule out. So we continued to follow up every 3 months or so. So this time, she had moved so the director is now seeing him, great it's who we were supposed to see in first place. So my DS had his appt, of course only time was smack in middle of nap time. so nap was skipped, second he has been sick for 2 days which always throws him off, third new person new facility, and fourth lady was over an hour late for our appt. So with a 3 yr old ready to implode, she walks in and says wow he has a lot of energy. I said he gets like this when he is overly tired, sick, etc, not to mention being stuck in a room for over an hour with mom trying to keep him occupied. She then proceeds to basically say that she thinks he is ADHD. I'm like really, what are you basing this on? After all the factors I described she labeled him with ADHD and proceeded to attempt to discuss meds. I said wait just a minute, I am NOT medicating my 3 yr old based on some crap assessment. How about assess him on a normal day without all these extra factors. I mean I was ready to bounce myself off the walls and I don't have ADHD. I said how much improvement we have seen with his speech and sensory stuff with therapies and I am not interested in medications. When his sensory system is balanced he is a typical 3 yr old. His teachers all agree. I am so irritated that my kid wasn't really given a good eval by a very well respected devel peds. Ugg, this crap is hard. Makes me question everything I do every single day with regards to my son. Sorry I just needed to vent and see if other people had experiences like this. She acted totally surprised that I wasn't willing to medicate him. Really?
