Hi Kelly, It's good that you are being proactive with your daughter, at least you know what you may be dealing with. It sure does sound like you have your hands full. My daughter has asthma, started when she was 2 weeks old and luckily it tapered off around 8 only to show up full force at puberty. She still has problems but knows when to use her medication before she gets really sick.
We aren't sure yet if our boy has bi polar of not, I mean there are many similiarities between so many neurological illnesses. His birth father was diagnosed as schizoprenic but our
pyschiatrist says he may be bi polar as many people in that age range don't have the right diagnosis. Anyways the meds she put him on work well. We've had to take him off the one due to side effects and the tics, mania etc have returned. Now we are going to try a new med to see if that will help.
We are so lucky to have great peopel working with our son. He has had a visual consultant involved since preschool and she helps the school get work brailled and teaches staff how to help. she also does his mobility training. Dwayne is in a life skills room which may not be the best place for him but he can't handle regular classes and needed a very structured environment.
I hope to see you here again. Have a nice day!
