I'm rather disturbed by how "blame like" this assessment is on us as parents. He hasn't even met us face to face and only via teleconference once and yet he's calling us defensive and my husband guarded and quiet. So much so as to say a parenting capacity test should be done. Err...no thank you, you don't even know us and you've only "met" us once. Why do these assessments always seem to blame the parents for the psychological issues of the child? Why does it feel, when I read this assessment, that I'm being blamed for my son's ADHD, learning difficulties and ODD? Mind you there were some pretty bright spots in the assessment as well. What the heck does "somewhat directive parenting" techniques mean? What is a GAF rating? (He's rated Big B at 65 if that helps the question - no I don't mind sharing that information either). What's Axis 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 - are these just point form analysis? Or are they point form in what should be addressed? This is the first time I've ever done an assessment where I got to read the report instead of being told point form what the report amounted to (and that was only occupational therapy specialist when he was a baby for being a preemie). So any insight or similar experiences for anyone to share?
