I have a soon to be 4 yr old grandson. We have noticed for the last couple of yrs that he is very hyper and aggressive. His dad has ADHD and my daughter thinks Devin may too. Last night I noticed that Devin will not look you in the eye for more then a second or two when you talk to him. He won't stay with the conversation, his speech can not be understood unless your used to listening to him, and then you can only understand a few words. His school has called and insisted that we take him to be checked out his Dr says he cant be diagnosed until he is 4 ( I told my daughter that was BS to insist on a request to Vanderbilt) The school also says they want to put a harness on him when he is on the school bus, this really burns me up. Devin has to ride the bus for over an hour each way every day. Our school pays us 41 cents a mile to transport Adam because he cant handle the long ride and they claim they can not change the route I am going to advise my daughter to insist on them making better arrangements our pay her to transport. There are no signs of OCD and no obviouse signs of Autism except for the no eye contact, which I do not know if that is a sign exclusive to Autism or not. He extremely loveable but on the same note he is agressive when being loveable (does that make sense?) I do not see any sensory issues like with Adam but that does not mean it is not there I wonder if his aggression is connected with too much noise like a loud tv or to many people talking at once. If any of you have a child like this please let me know about them and how I should direct my daughter to proceed. I have already told her to get and IEP, in Kentucky I think there are not to many ppl in her town that even know what an IEP is but I am going to get her to a workshop asap, does there have to be a diagnosis to get an IEP?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
