Pulguito Update

The results from Pulguito’s evaluation were, for all practical purposes, inconclusive. He scored between average and superior on the cognitive
evaluation (which I already knew). He is slightly pigeon-toed. He has a few minor (within the norm) fine-motor issues. His gross motor skills are average to excellent.

Based on questionaires filled out by myself and daycare, he could have ADHD, a defiance disorder, and a transition disorder.

The psychologist spent 1 hour at daycare on a day when he was really well behaved, so she didn’t note anything.

When I went back in for the followup meeting, the psychologist wasn’t there because her daughter was home sick from school/daycare. ARGH!

While I was there, the PE specialist and I talked about Sensory Integration Disorder. She said it was possible that he had that, but that they hadn’t spent enough time with him to give a diagnosis or not. She recommended the same books that Vicki had.

So I’ve been reading the books, and I think this is Tony’s problem.

My next step is to see the pediatrician. While I think there is a lot that we can do for Tony at home, using the books and any other tools, I also think that he would benefit greatly from working with an Occupational Therapist.
