My youngest, thank you, is I guess a difficult child. It is hard for me to givehim this title because he is just so easy to handle for me. He has some pretty big lags that the Occupational Therapist (OT) saw. They put his devel age at 2 YEARS behind his chronological age. At least I was able to get an evaluation by the end of hte year and a written report out of the school. He is a happy cheerful guy. Likes a wide variety of things (NO fixations, thank God!!), has responsibilities he handles, very good coping tools for when he is feeling upset. It just seems wierd because his problems are very real, but they do not cause any major upset in the family. We have learned to handle it and it just seems natural to us. I realized that there were real differences at the company picnic the other night. When seen with a group of other kids, he seems disconnected and much younger than his age. I guess B's problems were a blessing in disguise because I have the tools to lead us through thank you's problems and let us have a peaceful family life. We are even including B in more family activities with the stress level being reasonable. B still does not live with us though.
