I got a call from SS yesterday concerning Travis' disability. The CW needed more information, and while I gave it to him......I explained that it is difficult to give exact dates because it's been so long since he's seen docs due to no insurance, so I have to guesstimate. (wow, that word didn't pop up on spell check, it must be a real word lmao) Then he wanted to know a typical day in the life of Travis. That was easy. He gets up, goes to his computer desk and works on the game he's been working on for several years, at the end of the day he goes to bed. And yes, I explained computers are one of his main autistic obsessions. They'll be contacting us with appointments for him to see some specialists, which honestly I expected since it has been so long since his last doctor visit. He mentioned a neuropsychologist, and I smiled. There is only ONE adult neuropsychologist in the whole area for cincy, dayton, and columbus (maybe further). Travis got through half the evaluation with him before our insurance dropped him from the policy, and we couldn't afford to finish it out of pocket. I sat in with Travis during that evaluation..........and the doctor's reactions to Travis' responses.........well, let's just say he was a little stunned according to his body language and facial expressions. And yes, Travis did have some rather far out responses. lol But I'd told him to be honest. So the process has started. I've warned both girls they may have to be called upon to help get him to appointments.......because I haven't a clue where these specialist will be located. And I'm hoping to find a full time job. But I think between the 3 of us we shouldn't have too much trouble. I did have to laugh at one question. Does he drive? Seriously? Was this supposed to be a trick question? He's filing due to mainly the blindness. Oh......the next question was And is the reason he doesn't drive due to his vision? OMG Really? How many blind people drive? LOL Although.........I do know a legally blind man who drove. (he had lost his vision in his 30s) He had an elaborate set up with his best friend. If he had to drive somewhere his best friend would drive in front of him, letting him follow him. He could see well enough to make out his friends car, especially at night with the tail lights. My mom dated this man for a year.....it took her 6 months at least to figure out he was legally blind.
