Looking for doctor's dealing with intermittent explosive disorder in adults with downs' syndrome. Numerous meds./counseling-no help. Where can we go?

Looking for doctor's dealing with intermittent explosive disorder in adults with downs' syndrome. Numerous meds./counseling-no help. Where can we go?

Tough situation: My guess is that this will require a careful look at the overall health status, current meds, and neurological examination. Adults with ds do sometimes suffer gradual neurodegeneration, which can be manifest in dysfunctional behavior. But ied may just be the way a ds individual expresses frustration about something more mundane. Look for a neurologist with training in both peds and adult medicine.

How can I deal with a son with tourette's, ocd, adhd, oppositional defiant disorder and intermittent explosive disorder?

How can I deal with a son with tourette's, ocd, adhd, oppositional defiant disorder and intermittent explosive disorder?

Get expert help: Your son is very complex. So the meds will be too. But don't think of him as all these separate disorders. He really is 1 person w/ 1 complicated mental health dysfunction manifesting with symptoms of these various textbook diagnoses. I start with treatment of 1 problem, then move on to other issues. Each issue improved, makes the next problem easier to solve. He needs some success, and so do you.

Likely yes: There aren't medicines that reverse autism but anxiety is high in autism and it sounds like it may be anxiety preventing you from living a fulfilling life. Yes there are medicines that help anxiety in autism. Please see your local psychiatrist, ideally a child and adolescent psychiatrist.

What do I do if I might be suffering from autism spectrum disorder?

See your provider: It would be unusual to made it to adulthood without having been diagnosed and this not something that develops as an adult. An exception would be aspergers in its stereotypical form. If you have mainly struggled with social interactions and perhaps some anxiety, ocd, mood disorder and physical awkwardness it is possible. Start with your primary care provider.

I do not understand the difference between autism and autism spectrum disorder?

Interchangeable: There's no difference between those terms. Spectrum Disorder is simply a newer classification term referring to a family of disorders. The same is implied by saying someone simply has "autism." You are not specifying which behavioral problem they have....just generally saying there is a particular behavior/personality disorder which is recognized with this GROUP of problems.

I need your expertise, is higher functioning autism or Asperger syndrome also considered a mental health disorder?

Yes: The diagnosis has been incorporated into high-functioning autism. However, just because it's a handicap of sorts -- you'll never be super-coordinated and probably never excel at team sports -- you can learn social skills, and your ability to focus your mind is a huge PLUS in our tech age. And if single agrees with you, you're extra fortunate. Who needs to be exactly like everyone else?

Is there any difference between autism and an autistic disorder in children?

Same: Autism & autistic disorder are the same. As of may 2013, the new diagnostic manual is changing things, getting rid of asperger's disorder and pervasive developmental disorder & creating an umbrella term of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to include individuals with lifelong problems in social interactions & unusual interests or bizarre behaviors. Exact changes are not yet public but will be soon.

I was tested for autism and it came negative- what is the other disease that is similar?

Depends: Without knowing the age of the individual tested and the name of the test used it is hard to say. " autism tests" assess the presence or absence of certain skills and behaviors. These include language, social interaction, sensory issues and sterotypical movements. At younger ages autism spectrum disorders may appear similar to other neurodevelopmental disordeers. Ask provider for clarification.

If I have one child with autism what is the likelihood of my other two children having a mental development disorder?

No clear data.: Autism does not have a clear genetic basis. It is a spectrum type disorder with a range of severities. Hence there is no clear incidence rate in sblings or future offsprings. If there is a known chromosomal diagnosis and ASD is an add on co morbidity, then a geneticist, could come up with the odds.
