Okay her first session was a bit overwhelming. He did an array of screenings and come nowhere close to finishing. She got a bit episodish--I think I just made up a new word--anyway, he decided to stop for the day and pick back up on Thursday at 1:00. He did tell me that from what he was able to determine today, he would make the Dx for the need of services. His recommendation would be for 4 hours of therapy weekly. We thought it better to start the sessions when school was out for the summer. Since it only is 6 weeks away and the school it already pitching a fit because of the amount of school she misses. He said she has problems with her reasoning and the pragmatic parts--whatever that means! I swear some of this goes right over my head. He also wants to set her up to be evaled by an OT and PT. She has great trouble with fine motor skilld and her coordination is way off. Her hips rotate in making her extreamely pegoin toed. She falls and trips about every 10th step. I will keep you all up to date.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
