Confused Bipolar/PDD Help

My nine year old son is beyond what the school district offers to help him. He is out of control. I have no idea what to do now. I feel like he needs to be placed in a residential facility or something with that intensity to begin this journey. Please if you have any suggestions or help of any kind I would appreciate it.

9 years old
diagnosed first with adhd until he had a psychotic episode about a year ago
at that time he was diagnosed Bipolar Disorder type 1, mixed with severe psychosis, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, PTSD, ADHD and maybe ODD.
Current medications are 40mg Geodon B.I.D.

Hospitalized for out of control behavior and auditory command and visual hallucinations on five separate occasions since October 2011 the most recent being November 2012.

When released he was fine for a couple of weeks each time and then back to the same behavior issues caused by severe socialization issues.

We are in Central Texas with nothing that I can find to help us!!!

THanking you in advance!!

Hi there.
Welcome to the NeuroTalk Support Groups.

The Autism forum is sometimes a little quiet. You may find more support and information to help your son and you on the Bipolar forum which is usually busy. They're a great group of people there.

Here's the link.

Bipolar Disorder Forum

There's also this sub-forum below.

Parents with Bipolar Children

I'm sorry your son is having such a difficult time. I hope you find some answers.
