If none of your kids have a diagnosis such as HFA/ASD, PDD-NOS, ADHD, ODD etc, could you please take a moment to come.over to this thread

https://www.imamother.com/foru.....20#4416792

and click "No".

At the moment the other thread is suggesting that only 17% of families are NOT dealing with a kid with a diagnosis, and I am concerned that it is because of the title the thread and who is opening it.

Appreciate your help.

My daughter has Down syndrome. Does that count? Or you're only interested in alphabet soup diagnoses?

I have one son who's always been challenging (and probably getting kicked out of yeshiva) but no official diagnosis. Does that count?

It's funny I was typing this up saying I should have included Downs and etc.

I am trying to work out how many people are dealing with

1. Stigma
2. Having to have a support network.of therapists around you just to manage day to day parenting
3. Whether in fact all these labels are actually NORMAL - ae in more common than not, at least on a family if not individual basis.

Of course. It used to be: someone was a slob, someone was absentminded, someone was a neat freak, someone was meticulous, someone was scatterbrained. Nowadays, it's A, B, C, D, E, F, G and so on. My take on it.
Of course if it's excessive to the point of not functioning properly in a basic setting it's a different story. Even scatterbrained people can use tips to improve their quality of life, but this has definitely gotten out of hand

I have a step-DD who is disorganized, scatterbrained and spacey. She also has anxiety and is a major drama queen. DH thinks she just has these qualities and this is who she is. She herself wants a diagnosis. She keeps saying, ā€œIā€™m ADD, right?ā€
