Re: If you have a child with ODD...

My oldest was diagnosed ADHD and ODD at the age of 8, I think? We never felt comfortable with that diagnosis, it didn't seem to fit to me. This past year he was diagnosed with aspergers, ADHD, and anxiety. Makes perfect sense to us.

Anyway, he does get angry, and melts down. He can't handle unexpected schedule changes, or when things don't go his way. He doesn't transition well, mornings are awful (getting out the door). He is explosive, but IMO has never been defiant. He melts down when things get to be too much... I can see the triggers now. Not sure any of this helps you...
