Well, today was the big day. Paul went and saw a dev. ped. and a child psychologist. First, let me say he is feeling better now and has been off his breathing treatments for a day now. Well, on to today. First, they told me the wrong office to go to. So, we got there and Paul was fine b/c his neuro is in the same office. Then, they told me, no you need to go to the other office. Well Paul had a major tantrum b/c what he thought was going to happen did not. We got to the other office OK and Paul settled down when he saw the cool toys. The dev. ped. suggested we see a sleep dr. to help with the sleep issues and noted some issues about Paul's muscle tone. Then, the child psyc. said she felt Paul had a speech disorder. Hello, his dad and I have been saying this like forever and everyone was like no that is wrong (even speech therapists). The school dis. that evaled Paul said he was on a 3 yr old level or better and the psyc. said that was bull crap. So, at least now we know we are not crazy. She also noticed some sensory and behavior issues. She gave him several tests and me several ?s and is going to score these. Then, I go back on the 17th of January. Oh, and she also said OT would help him also which I kept saying even though the OTs said no. So, they are going to help us get Paul the services he needs. When I go back the 17th they will have the tests scored and be able to tell me what level Paul is functioning at and how far behind his peers his is. They will then also be able to tell me if his is on the spectrum or not and give us all some suggestion of how best to work with him. So, even though we have no concrete answers, we know we are not crazy which is a big relief! Well, thanks for reading all that I know it was long but I wanted to let all know.
