Hello! I'm new here and am already feeling less alone. We have an 8-year-old who I believe has ADHD and ODD. He is soo hard to deal with on most days. He has giant outbursts with name-calling, throwing things, he's punched his younger brother, broken windows, etc. My husband and I are out of hope. It's hard to even describe how bad his bad days are and how terrible he makes it for everyone else. We love him, but some days it's very difficult to feel that love.
My question is: Is there a psychologist or therapist you'd recommend, specifically that has experience in dealing with ODD kids? We'd like to get him formally evaluated and start treatment/counseling ASAP. We are in the northern VA area. Thanks in advance!
