Reply to Oppositional defiant disorder

There are so many things to consider first... I suggest you see 1) a child psychologist or developmental specialist to see how much of this is typical 2)an occupational therapist for a sensory profile and evaluation. It is highly unlikely your child has the emotional and cognitive ability to even consider the types of processes involved in being "oppositional" and "defiant." It is much more likely there is something going on that is very hard to communicate with his current vocabulary and which because of his limited sense of the minds of others he is not even aware he should communicate in the first place! So sorry - this sounds so hard on you. But I bet ODD is not the answer...
