Finally a professional who agrees with me!

Post by Lilly on Thu 2 May 2013 - 14:06

We finally have our own speech therapist who opened her practice today! I took W for an evaluation and told her how I feel about the diagnosis and that I feel W was misdiagnosed and she agrees with me! Hallelujah!!!!! She is going to focus on his speech development and therapy starts next week Tuesday. Two days a week and we'll work around his mood etc. Things are finally starting to fall into place!!! Thank God!!!!!

One happy mommy Very Happy

Ah I'm so happy for you - there is a VERY interesting article on Autism and how some of the children are misdiagnosed and also all the different types you get. If you want me to scan and mail it to you - let me know - it was very well written

Ek sal so maak!

She suggested we start with sign language, apparently language first develops in the brain and then becomes a motor action (mouth movement) and with some kids that action is delayed so they first introduce sign language and then start adding words. Starting with sign language will strengthen the connection between the brain and mouth.

That is awesome Lilly! Sounds exactly like what happened to my nephew, also misdiagnosed. Apparently there is such a fine line that it often happens.

Good luck with the new poa!
