Why is children’s mental health so widely disagreed on?

EAch doctor see something else, labels it one thing (Adhd) another doctor says aspenger (low spectrum Autism) another Bipolar, another odd or Conduct Disorder. all with the same titles and education. How do you ever really know what is wrong with your child? And how do you make sure your child is getting the correct treatment is the diagnose is so different?
Is their a test that can watch brain activity, to see if something is wrong with the way a brain is suppose to work?

Diagnosing a Mental Illness is often very difficult, because there are so many variables, especially with children. With children under 18 some behavior is appropriate at one age but then most out grow it. Mental Health Issues are NOT an exact science like most or at leastt many physical illnesses.
Occasionallyy there are blood test or MRI but not usually. and let face it with younger children they often have some trouble expressing how they are feeling.
As far as the best diagnosis, I would go to the best Psychiatrist that you can find, one that specializes in children- youchild’sd’s age. I would not take a child to a general pract. for a psych. evaluation-they just do not have enough experience or training to stick a label on your child for life. Most doctors are reluctant to give a Bipolar diagnosis until well past 18 yrs. If I can answer any other specific questions please email me. God Bless REGGIE

What will happen to a boy with ADHD if his parents ignore it and always blame him for daydreaming?

in school and acting wild and not having any friends (since no one wants to be friends with an ADHD child.) or getiing summer jobs or jobs on the weekends or after school.

And the school doesn’t care and just promote the students at the end of the year no matter what their academic achievements are.

ADHD attention deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

What kind of emotional scars will such a child have.
What kind of an adult will this child turn out to be?

He would probably stop trying because no matter how hard he tries his parents will constantly tell him that he’s stupid and that his low grades are proof of it even though he tries really hard to focus on what the teacher said. That’s what happened with me.

What is the difference between Asperger Disorder And Autism?

With children that have Asperger and they have an aid in school will they always need to have one…What are the chances they won’t?? Thanks

As you can tell, there is a great deal of disagreement over what Asperger’s Disorder (AS) is, even among the experts. My son has an Asperger’s diagnosis, and from the most recently published books I’ve read, it seems that Asperger’s is recognized as high-functioning Autism, although not high-functioning Autistic Disorder (AD, which is an entirely different diagnosis on the autism spectrum).

Children with AS do not have the same level of communication problems children with AD have. They speak and develop language skills at roughly the same time as “typical” children, but their use of social language is very different. Children with AD are very different in the way they learn to use language, have more unusual forms of language, and many never speak.

Children with AS frequently go undiagnosed until 7 or 8, while children with AD are usually identified well before age 3.

Children with AS usually don’t score in the range of Mental Retardation on standardized IQ tests, while this is common in children with AD.

Children with AS usually have verbal abilities (vocabularly or factual knowledge) that are better than their nonverbal abilities, while the reverse is often true for children with AD.

Children with AS usually have an interest in other people, but lack the skills to initiate and maintain social interaction. Children with AD are more likely to be aloof, withdrawn or passive.

Children with AS often have a difficult and miserable time at school. It is hard for them to deal with unpredictability, confusion and chaos. Often, they don’t understand what to expect or what is expected of them. As they struggle to cope, their level of Anxiety rises, which causes them to become more sensitive to sensory stimulus such as noise. When their sensory difficulties are aggravated, they become even more anxious. They have a difficult time getting along with their peers in unstructured, less supervised periods such as recess and lunchtime. They have very little understanding of social nuances and concepts which other children pick up easily. Many children with AS also have difficulties with handwriting, attention, concentration and organization. They are also easy targets of bullying, and sometimes they overreact to innocent joking or teasing and misperceive themselves as a victim of bullying. For all these reasons, an aid or ParaPro is very desirable for an AS child, and parents should make every effort to secure this assistance from the school.

Many experts agree that problem behavior associated with AS begins to rise around age 7, peak somewhere around 12-14, and then starts to decline with the onset of puberty.

I agree that it is advisable to consult a DAN practitioner for biomedical treatment assistance. My son is currently under care of a DAN doctor, and we have seen marked improvement. In the meantime, it’s best for parents to take advantage of all the accomodations they possibly can to help increase their child’s success at school.
