Hi,

I think its wise to find a specialist when dealing with young children.

Many child and adolescent psychiatrists are well equipped to diagnose and treat children with AD(H)D.
A second opinion is always a good thing, especially if the child is still struggling.

I have located a few centers in your area that may be helpful to you in finding a qualified Dr. to see your son.

Calling them may open up new ideas and resources.

Lastly the link below is a general link for your state.

It may take awhile to sort thru what is appropriate for your son, but I am sure there are a few more options for you to explore.

Take care !!
