Janie Grace Posted July 31, 2012 Share Posted July 31, 2012 Help? I'm new to this "world," and I'm finally getting some answers about my 9yo ds who has always seemed different in ways -- some just quirky, some concerning and confusing. So far, he has diagnoses of hypotonia, developmental coordination disorder, sensory processing disorder and inattention. He is being tested for auditory processing disorder next month. First off -- is there a thread that connects things like this? Honestly, I'm a bit alarmed by the number of things he "has"... I guess I thought there would be one diagnosis or label that would explain everything. So, those of you who are familiar with these kinds of issues... might there be some connection between these various things, and if so, what? Why does he have these struggles and none of my other kids do? I'm sad for him. His IQ is above average, but he really has a hard time with things that are just easy for everyone else in the family. :( Also, what is the purpose of visual perceptual testing? What are they looking for? That's something his OT wants done soon. Thanks in advance! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
