Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi, I'd like to help you with your question.
So I can help you the best way possible, I need to ask for more information.
What area of the US do you live in? Has your son been diagnosed with anything- mental health or learning disability? When was the last time he saw a therapist and what kind of therapist was it? Did the therapy help?
Thank you for the information. It helps.
There should be a community mental health clinic near you. You can contact them, let them know your situation, and they should assist you in finding appropriate care for your son. If they cannot help you, they will know resources that can. They should provide you with information, including phone numbers, that you can use to help your son find help.
The community mental health center can also help you with finding funding and disability money for your son. They can either complete the work themselves, or find you resources so you can apply for financial help. Here is a link to the local center and some other resources to help you:
The therapist that saw your son does not sound like she completed the appropriate testing to find out what is going on with your son. You may need to have him seen by an Educational psychologist who can help diagnose your son's condition. Here is more information about educational psychologists and how to find one:
Be sure to sign releases to allow all of the professionals involved in your son's care to communicate with one another. That way, your son can have the best care possible.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help,
