This isnt much of a thread, but was interesting to observe yesterday...... I spoke a bit to difficult child ST......She was glowing of excitement, going on about how wonderful difficult child is doing, he is such a clever boy, great to have in therapy......you know, with that look in her eyes that says....mommy, I cant see anything wrong with this child, why are you so worried! So I tell her about the problems we still have, to find out if ST will be able to help solve it, for example him not being able to catch onto the context of situations, not reading nonverbal correctly, overreacting on it...Bursting out in tears if he misread hubbies face and think he is angry....laughing when some one gets hurt or struggles......Wanting to hate some one, but then its about anxiety.....Him biting his hand from anxiety, causing bad eczema.....exct.....Reaction from ST....DROP JAW! So she gets it that the child she see one on one isnt the one we see in social context! I dont blame her at all......It just irritates me that professionals see our kids and then makes us feel as if we are overreacting! We are not stupid!
