Psychiatrist 's  Response

Hi there ~ To answer your question I have added a link here from the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) which has facts for families (in many languages) that have children and adolescents with problems similar to yours.

I hope this helps. It may also be helpful to find a child psychiatrist that is able to treat your child for specific symptoms locally.

Take care.
