In brief: Parent support group

If the child is not diagnosed, the first step is to see a psychologist to determine exactly what the issues are and to get treatment for the child.
If the child has already been diagnosed, seeking out the support of the child's psychologist is the best place to start. In addition, there are many parent support groups for parents of children with specific issues/disorders.
