We took him to a different therapist who said it may be OCD because she notices the way he was playing with cars.. If I make a car fly or crash or something he will try and do the Mae, but if he's just playing by himself He just lines them up... It's so confusing! The first therapist said he was too young to see a psychiatrist , but if his behavior didn't improve in a month they will give him medication for it and also for his sleeping disorder (he wakes up in the middle of the night to get foo or turn the tv in or just play around, even if its dark and usually around 4 or 5 am.. He has symptoms of autism, which is why our pedi wants him screened, he was diagnosed with a speech delay a year and 10 months ago and has made very little preferences and just started putting 2 words together but isn't able to communicate, also sensory issues, and like I said behavior, sleeping issues and trouble with him eating (picky) I'm very eager to find someone who can help me diagnose my son so he can get the proper therapy he needs, I need someone who specializes in mental health, such as autism, ADHD, oCD.. And such, he also gets very irritated in restaurants and throws fits.. Anyone with any info I would really appreciate it!! We in live HOUSTON TX.. But don't mind a little drive far out to surrounding areas. Thank you all SO much!! And God bless.
I don't know about Texas, but in CA we have Regional Center for developmentally disabled; there should be probably something similar in Texas, they can help. You also need to push the school district to screen your child and provide early intervention. You may need to find and consult an educational advocate who explains the law to you, so you know your rights and what you can ask from the school district. Unfortunately I don't know much as I am in CA. For medical advice, I highly recommend Dr. Kendal Stewart in Austin.
Thank you!! Austin is not too far from us about 4 hours but I am willing to take the drive!! I will definitely call them next week and see what their soonest available appointment is! I really appreciate the help. Thank you sooooooo much!!
