Seriously, why do I still try to talk to my parents??? Litlle chit chat is just fine and seems it is all they really can comprehend. I've been struggling with difficult child for some times now and cannot ever get any support from them. They either judge me or when I try to explain the "problem" they just go blank. This morning, I've sent them an article explaining difficult child's issues (Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD)) since the speech therapist made such a strong recommendation to go see the audiologist. The therapist also tod me to handle it as Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD) even if the diagnosis is not yet official. So I thought: they could understand the situation better, might be more receptive to the way things have to be done with difficult child, etc... NOPE! My mother's answer: "I don't know... I can't diagnose him". No sh**?! Nobody asked her to give a diagnosis!!! Then she goes on "well, will see if he has it..." GRRRRRRRRRR. They are coming in a month and I told difficult child's therapist I'm worried. They make things worst with him and ALWAYS intervein in discipline or "save" him when I handle a meltdown. The therapist suggested to have a witten plan for everyone to follow and she said they really need to back off. Sigh... I don't know if they can follow a written plan when they can't even appreciate some helpful information about their grandson's condition... Even after reading the article my mother says "it's hard to believe since his language skill are so good". Has she read anything??? Language is not an issue in Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD). I really need to learn to talk about the weather with them.
