My son is adopted who is now 8.5 and I have had him straight from hospital.
He was born with neonatal abstinence syndrome. He was a very difficult baby and still is, I have fought the medical profession since day one. He is not a cuddly child, never has been, he has been dx with SPD but I kept saying there was more to it. Seeing paediatricians in our area is almost non existent at present, people retiring, leaving, whatever. I have gone as far as geneticist and all I have so far is there is nothing showing up on genes so we think it's "probable" he has FASD. That's were I am stuck.
My GP isn't prepared to send elsewhere as she thinks that the benefit of knowing if he has or has not got it won't help.
I have been on all training courses for ADHD, Autism, FAS, even parenting courses which were useless because their way of parenting doesn't work on FASD kids, all fostering training too and because mum denied taking drugs and drink I can't get any further.
Why would I be still after a dx if my son wasn't showing all signs of FASD. And why isn't there an easier option. Where do I go from here.
