urinating in inappropriate places

Christian is eight years old, he was diagnosed with ADHD and emotional adjustment disorder when he was just five. He has been taking adderrall for two years.  I woke up this morning to find out that he has been secretly unrinating on the carpet, toys and storage drawers.  He did this same behavior when he was five  urinated on the books at school. I thought it has stop.  My son went to live with his dad after my son disclosed that a four boy tried to put his penis in his butt. My relationship with my son has been great the last seven months. Christian has been seeing a psychologist for almost three years. Father reports Christian doesn't have any behaivor problems at home. My son is in a self-contained EBD class.The teacher reports severe anger mangement problems and low frustration tolerance. He was once a candiate for the talented and gifted. Can someone give me some advice in seekiing help for my son? What type of neuropsychological testing is available? What could be causes of this odd behavior?

What does the psych say about all of this? I would think they would be giving you recommendations...

the psych says I'm doing something at home to trigger this. My son denies this behavior at his dad or PGM's home. I have an appt with another psych.

Okay, let's say that you were doing something to trigger it. I still can't wrap my head around them not referring you somewhere for help.

My son is 8 and this morning I caught him urinating on his floor after he had gone to the bathroom.  He is ADD and is on 10 mg of Focalin.
I am totally at a loss as to why he did this.  He did it a few times when he was around 5 but hasn't done it until now.  He won't tell me why he did it either.
