Specialist angels to be sure

My grandson is going to be 13 October 24th. He is having his diagnosis assessed a bit differently and his ODD won't be for fore most diagnosis. His ADHD will be now. We got him diagnosed early on when he was about 4 or 5. He was having anger issues to the point where he would fall on the floor and kick. His mother and I would stand on either side to assure that he would not hit the walls and hurt himself. He was diagnosed with Oppositional Defiance Disorder and a PSR started coming to see him each week. She was delightful and was very good with him. He has had a PSR for about nine years now. She was with him about five of that. She took him out in the community and on some fun outings. She was very good with him. He has had three others since then. All were good but she was special. I really cannot say enough good things about these social workers. I really think of them as angels. One comes to see my daughter now too. She is bi-polar. They come for a couple hours a week and are available on the phone if we need them. Incase you are not familiar with these angels they are Psychological Rehabilitation Specialists who are experts in teaching children and adults self sufficiency, effective communication, dealing with anxiety, realistic life goals, moral reasoning, problem identification, resolution and sense of humor.

They are indeed very special people. I was a special education teacher for 25 years and had students with Pervasive Development Disorder, ODD, ADD, ADHD, speech and language disorders, learning disabilities, etc. Those specialists made my job easier through their support, compassion, and intellect. Bless you, them, and your grandson.

You are so lucky to have that there. When my mother in law took sick and had so many problems we didn't have the help here on the island to take care of her. It was up to the family to do all. The only help we actually got was a nurse coming once a day to give her the morning bath and make sure her feeding tube was OK. Wish they had more help like they do here on the islands. I can see why you consider them angels. You are very lucky to have people like this to help you out.

I think they are more apt to have them for children than for adults. I wish I had one!

It does take a special kind of person to specialize in this field and be very good at it.

@celticeagle Yes you were. I have a friend who has a child with a form of autism. She is 19 years old and functions on the level of a 1-2 year old and my friend has had some really bad experiences trying to get help for her daughter.

I am glad they have been able to help your family. They do sound like very special people.It must be very difficult to discipline a child with ODD effectively. Hats off to you and your daughter as well.

He is a great little guy and has come a long way and a lot of it is thanks to them.

It takes a special person to be able to do that. I do not know if they have them in my state. My great niece could have benefited. She got some counseling but never had a one on one worker that I am aware of

We have had about six and only two were really that good. It sure does take a special person. So many kids could benefit. And, I think this interaction could have helped some of these kids who end up killing family and go into the schools. They should have had some type of social worker coming to their home early on.
