Specializes in Child Psychiatry

Can Be Difficult: This usually requires a therapy or counseling setting in which your son will see someone individually, and then there would be additional family sessions with either the same therapist or a different therapist. Non-medication therapies are usually the treatment of choice. Occasionally, medications will be used if the person with odd has particularly severe temper outbursts.

Start with your doc: Your local doc should be aware of the local resources for diagnosis and care. Even though most don't feel comfortable trying to manage these kids on their own, they have likely had to source help for similar issues in the past.A call to the office staff may be able to get the process started. Your insurance card may also have a 1-800 number on the back for behavioral health referrals.
