Thanks. Why did you think your son had ODD? How did he act? I haven't really taken elimination diets too seriously yet, though we are artificial anything free, pretty much. I wouldn't know where to start. They frustrate me to no end, b/c you know how you try so hard to keep them healthy, and then even the raw organic dairy or certain fruits and veggies (in the case of feingold) are out.
The therapist suggested adhd or aspergers (maybe) in addition to the unofficial diagnosis of odd, but it just doesn't make sense to me. He fits the odd descriptions to a T. I have read endless descriptions of the others and asd and nothing makes sense. He used to meltdown a lot and sometimes acted out strangely in newer situations, but that has disappeared mostly. That was noticeable and alarming to me, but it was infrequent and has faded. He does great in school, makes friends, so I don't know. He's always made eye contact, had normal motor development, his speech seems "normal," so I guess even with the continuum, that didn't make sense. But I just knew something wasn't quite right. It's the ODD type stuff that is the pervasive problem. His brothers never, ever act this way.
