Just recently his doctor has told us our son had ODD. We knew something else was wrong and are glad to know what it is so we can finally help him. We were told about FCIT. I have done some reading on it and it doesnt sound much different than what we have been doing at home already. Besides ADHD and ODD our son also has panic attacks and a texile disorder. I just joined webmd with the hopes that we can find some other parents with children like our sweet Matthew. We feel so alone. He is such a lovely little guy but none of our friends can see past his behavior sometimes. As he has gotten older he has gotten much better because we can talk to him and he understand more now and can control himself better. Any suggestions on things that have worked for you to get your child to work harder in school, to listen better at home, to self motivate? Thanks!
