I really need to take a minute to thank all of you that commented and emailed me about my sweet Campbell and his SPD.
I’m reading and responding as I get the chance. It’s slow going, though. Just know that I appreciate it all greatly.
Although I was a little angry in my last post (that fabric store incident set me off, LOL!), I’m really OK with everything. Finally having a name for it isn’t going to change my day to day life. I’m insanely blessed and I recognize that every day. Seriously…have you seen my kids? Practically perfect.
And now the part where I ramble/answer some of the questions I got the most:
We HAVE seen a developmental pediatrician (not covered by insurance..yay). She’s the one that gave us a referral for the OT evaluation.
We HAVE contacted the school district. They said that since it’s not a speech issue, they can’t help. Once we meet with the psychologist (in another month…he was booked like 3 months out, also not covered by insurance) and everything’s “official”, we’ll revisit that situation.
We HAVE had an OT evaluation. They say he needs therapy, but they don’t have any openings. After they get insurance approval, or maybe *if* they get insurance approval, we’ll go on a wait list. The wait is generally in the 2 month range.
We DO have an appointment scheduled with a psychologist. I guess that’s the standard procedure? They also suspect anxiety (which given who his mother and father are, I’d say “DUH!”).
He currently attends 3 year old preschool and does well (in fact, his teacher called me to tell me how fabulous he was in class). He just loses it when he gets home. The 2 hours of keeping it together is hard on him.
I’m wading through The Out of Sync Child, but it’s not keeping my attention, LOL! And, let’s face it….there are A LOT of distractions around here.
Anyway, thanks. I appreciate all of you.
