Today when my daughter got home from school I was very upset at what my husband informed me that her teacher had said to him. My daughter is 4 years and at the age 2 she was diagnosed that she was behind in her speach 6-9 months now it is not getting any better and she is seeing a speach therapist at her school. We ask her teacher questions and it is like they dont know because they dont really give us answers. We get no feed back from the therapist at all on how our daughter is doing. At the first assessment she was said that she only knew 2 letters, now in the end they are saying the same thing but now it is two different letters. We have been asking the teacher how she has been doing and everything and they always tell us that she is doing fine. My husband mentioned we thought she was possibly autistic or had adhd or something going on with her, the teacher said she didnt think that was it. So she made my husband and me feel like our daughter is stupid. Our daughter is smart in some areas and slow in a lot of others. We are lost and really dont know what to do for her. We dont know who to take her to or anything. We are afraid that she will get lost in school and end up misread and they will just label her a bad seed instead of addressing the real issue. When her day is scrambled we have a hard time with her, she has a bad day. when she has pants that have holes in them she is really wiggin it, when we change something that she normally does in her routine she really wigs out. she also gets really frustrated alot especially when people cannot understand her and she can get evil. she has been acting out alot. She bytes her sisters and hits them and pushes them and yells and screams but when she has a strict routine we seem to have no issues with her but what a normal 4 year old will do. She also hits her dad and I. She grinds her teeth when she is angry and stomps her feet and slams the doors and kicks the walls and stuff... We have been trying to work with her on her alphabet and everything at home and her attention span just isnt there. We have had her hearing tested and and stuff and still we are getting no help with anything. I am lost. My husband wants to homeschool her because he doesnt want her to be treated like a stupid kid and the issues not be addressed. I somewhat agree but also want her to have the socialness that you get when going to school and the interaction with other children. HELPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi all! This is for those of you that have or have had the same neurologist for 4 years or more. I have been with mine now since 2009. He is one of the best movement disorder secialists in the midwest. I know he is extremely busy on the lecture circuit now and in fact not taking new patients there is a huge waiting list for him. BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
