on our own
hello all, i am new here, i signed up hoping to find help, friendship, heck just to let off some steam, my 8 year old Donovan, we call him donnie, is a caring, loving, happy little boy, he's sensitve to others feelings, if you cry he wants to comfort you. he's recently been diagnosed with PDD-NOS, and ADHD, he's currently in an 8.1.1 class on Methylin, Risperdone, and Zoloft. such extremes for a young mind and body. i feel lost not being able to shelter him from all the evils he's facing, he has no friends, spends most of his time with me or his dad. I'm frustrated with the school because i'm not sure if the classroom setting is right for him, i sometimes think he needs a specilized school to help him organize better.
his reading, math, and speach is below average i feel like a failure working fulltime no sleep constantly having to do smiple things for him because he's so forgetful. we live in long island ny, knowing no one here we both are isilated from the world. even with his disability i wouldnt change his joyful personality, his caring soul. just wish life wasnt so hard for my little munchkin. any help, guidence, or a listening ear would be so appreciated.
