Okay, been and come back in one piece from our trip to the big city to see the neuro-psychologist. She is yet to send me the detailed report, which will go into some emotional/behavioural components that she didn't go into with me, but basically: J has something called visual-spatial dsypraxia NOT dyslexia as I was beginning to be certain. His scores on the WISC were 131 on the memory tests 116 on the verbal reasoning tests 103 on speed/performance tests 86 on visual-spatial tests Which is a HUGE discrepancy between top and bottom scores and what, she said, pointed to the presence of this "dys"... she said his reading problems were actually more related to visual/spatial factors (she said that b,d,p and q all look more or less the same to him) than some innate difficulty with reading. So... I've very often read about dyspraxia in relation to ADHD (she specified that he does not general dyspraxia but just this visual-spatial kind) but don't know so much. Another steep learning curve coming up! Anyone have any personal knowledge/experience?
