Well, whaddaya know. A couple weeks ago, when Pat was on Spring Break, I took a day off work and we got his eyes checked and new glasses ordered, and his hearing tested. Of course, he tested fine... But I convinced the doctor to give us a referral to an audiologist. Audiologist sent paperwork, which we sent back filled out. They said they would call as soon as they had an opening, but it would probably be 3-4 months. They called last Friday to set him up for yesterday! Woot! And the verdict (not in writing yet, but they are doing up a report): Mostly normal range... Except... Processing issues consistent with learning disabilities, specifically comprehension and spelling, and being able to follow directions properly or sequentially. Their report most likely will not qualify him for disability, which is fine as it would likely be less than he is receiving as death benefit from bio mom. BUT - it should qualify him for more services from the SD and our county! YAY!!!
