We just got the reports back from the school district. It is all so overwhelming! The reports dont say anything that we didnt already know. Basically it says that his Overall scores appear to indicate weaknesses in word and sentence structure and understanding basic concepts. Sammy does have a communication disorder. The identified disorder is in expressive and receptive language. These are the basic scores from the testing: Scale Developmental Age Discrepancy from Chronological Age (months) Physical 26 months -11 Self-Help 22 months* -15 Social 28 months -9 Academic 34 months -3 Communication 32 months -5 The Psychologist also did some testing and observed him at his school which is a private school and basically what she said was she agrees with the other doctors and therapists that he is not Autistic. If it were to show later that he was on the spectrum, it would be very minor. She noticed his anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). She also said that he is "at risk" for Bipolar or ODD or other behavior/mood disorders. This is not a surpirse to us or anyone else that Knows Sammy very well. He only qualifies for speech in the school district because the other issues are non issues "in the learning enviornment" Hopefully his case manager will call us next week like they said and set up his ARD. Sammys therapist said he will come with us to the ARD to make sure that they actually do provide the services that fit Sammy's needs. Has anyone been through an ARD? Any pointers I should know about before starting this? Again, I am not surprised by any of this report it is just weird to see it written in a formal report and there are so many things to process in my brain. Again if anyone has any advice about the ARD, we have no idea what we are doing! I guess the thing that concerns me the most is that he does not qualify for anything other than speech becuase to them these other issues such as self help and physical do not affect his learning in the classroom. Given his behavior issues at home which they did note, he is not going to improve from instructions at home because he does not handle directions with these things at home due to severe behavioral issues for us! If anyone has any suggestions on what we should be doing, it will be very welcomed. We have no idea what we are doing when it comes to the school district.
