Your psychologist has mentioned that she thinks that your son has a mood regulation disorder. While it is recognised that children with bipolar disorder may fall into the category of mood dysregulation disorders, this is not the only possibility by any means.It is most important to first exclude conditions such as ADHD, ODD [which your psychologist should be diagnosing] and Autism syndromes. I agree that your son probably should be seen by a child psychiatrist [not always easy to find in this country] or get a second opinion from an experienced child psychologist.
