Got it done today (while my parents took care of Sweet Pea and Partner. ). He did show some issues: decoding (phonemic issues and comprehension in noise), auditory memory and auditory sensitivity (covers his ears in loud noises). The doctor seemed to be very thorough and explained everything. She even gave me her direct number to share with our Speech Language Pathologist (SLP). She was not surprised that he could not learn pre-academics. She gave me a few pamphlets about those specific areas and what we can do about it. Her full report should be ready within 1 week. Which is excellent: I'll have it before school evaluation. She also mentioned visual therapy while we were going over V's challenges. I'll have to look into that and talk to our Occupational Therapist (OT). The Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) had also mentioned dyslexia which I think is a visual problem in reading?? We are accumulating issues, but at least we have some answers, we know what we are dealing with. I can't wait to share the report with Speech Language Pathologist (SLP). V is really challenging him... he is actually not getting anywhere with him right now. And V is increasingly frustrated, fidgety and distractable during speech session. He tried to incorporate writing to help him memorize words (days and months) and he was baffled! V was so focused in his work but the result was a disaster: the letters were all mirrored, upside down, side ways, etc. And no consistency in it either. Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) said he had never seen that. It gives me a small preview of what school will be next year. It does not look pretty and I really need to obtain an IEP to protect my little V. Faced with someone who doesn't get it: it will be a disaster and I'm afraid V will be crushed... Any practical advise on the cautionary Auditory Processing Disorders (APD) diagnosis (since he is under 7, he can't have a firm diagnosis) applied to school?? Has anyone heard and use the customized personal filters (kind of like a hearing aid but to filter background noise. not fm system with transmitter and receiver)? Thanks for any input!
