I'm planning to make my 7 year old daughter an appointment with a pediatrician soon to ask about how we should go about getting my daughter a psychological evaluation without medical insurance. She has had problems ever since her 5 month vaccine reaction...and it's only getting worse lately. She has violent fits, irrational thoughts, mood problems and sensory issues. Her problems seem to come and go...cycle in and out.
Tonight she had a 45 minute tantrum, with me and her father in the room. She was completely out of control. We think she may be suffering from bipolar disorder.
This has been very difficult. Please advise me on where to go with these problems without insurance or a ton of money to spend on expensive tests/treatment. Are there any options available to uninsured parents of special needs children?
Thank you for any advice you can offer.
