Kanga had a FSIQ of 84 but she had a 26pt difference between her lowest and highest section so her FSIQ isn't fully valid. She is borderline for all language areas and average for non verbal areas. They ruled out Bipolar and stayed with Major Depression with Psychotic Features and added Reading Disorder, Expressive Language Disorder, Aggression, Parent-Child Conflict (not full Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) but huge intimacy issues), and a few others I can't remember. The recommendations were: 1. continue therapy (no brainer) 2. find positive African-American female role model (she will start getting respite 1 evening per week; while I am happy that they are going to give us respite with a worker that the therapist really likes, it concerns me that the worker not attempt to "mother" her because she is already so mixed up as to what a mother is) 3. see pediatrician re: injuries (this one I don't get as her injuries took place prior to 3 years old - these are 9 year old static injuries???) 4. therapuetic day school (yikes! she gave me the name of a few, I knew about all but one and the new one is in its 2nd year and it seems is doing good work, and is down the street about 3 miles from us; I hope to go observe there tomorrow) 5. have her tested more throughly for Learning Disability (LD) (um, done many times and again last month) 6. have her receive hygenie training (um, she knows how to clean herself but on bad days she just doesn't care) 7. maintain psychiatrist appointments and continue to re-evaluate medications 8. Mom gets individual therapy and parenting skills training (this one annoyed me as I have done absolutely everything they have suggested and some of it works and some of it backfires completely; therapist said that it is not a knock on my parenting but an acknowledgement of how difficult Kanga is to raise and a concern that as the others hit puberty I'll have to suffer through this with each of them) I asked who was going to pay for this since I do not have mental health insurance, no answer to that other than they might start a parent group since I am part of a growing group of parents that they have recommended this to and there aren't places to send us. Course, why doesn't Dad have to go????? Lots of talk about Kanga's low self-esteem, sense of inadequacy, fear of emotional closeness, and continued suicide risk. A brief mention of accepting that Kanga should head down a vocational path in HS rather than a college path - sorry not setting the bar that low when Kanga WANTS to go to college and become a teacher. Of course the first 3 pages of the report - the history part - I red inked everywhere as there were so many errors I could scream. She is retyping the report and giving it to me Thursday. While I agreed with 95% of the report it was still weird to see it in print. It made me very sad.
