I think you just keep going until you find someone who *hears* what you are saying and listens. I can't tell you the relief I felt when the Paed was actually asking the right questions and we were on the same wavelength.

I know there is a med they use in some children with Aspergers that helps with impulse control but honestly, he is 2 and there isn't a lot of mental, physical and emotional control at that age.

Is there a daycare or preschool in your area that works with integration? He might really enjoy the activities of older boys and groups of children slightly older than him. They might be able to interest him and I can imagine YOU need a break.

It is exhausting having a 2 year old to begin with, but day after day, hour after hours, it starts to feel like I'm going to suffocate, and mine is almost 6. I also think the earlier you can integrate into the mainstream, the better. Mine is really, really struggling, and while ADHD isn't her LD, she has Aspergers and just cannot work into the classroom situation.

Hugs, I hope you can find someone to listen to your concerns. It is SO hard at times.
