southernm Posted September 29, 2012 Share Posted September 29, 2012 Ds 7 is textbook gifted, dyslexic , and dysgraphic. We had him assessed last May and we were so relived to find out the "why" for many of his quirks. The most prevalent issue with him right now is fear. He's been through phases like fear of parking lots, cutting nails. Usually those last a month and fade. He seems to now have developed a fear of being "alone" (his words). Most of the time cannot be alone in a room. Lights/no lights day/night doesn't matter. He makes his 5 yo sister go everywhere with him. At times it's so dibilitating that he will refuse to enter the guest bathroom (10 feet away from me) without someone standing by the door. He sleeps on the couch in our bedroom. It's frustrating when I need him to run up to his room to grab a pair of socks. He just can't go in. We've had to move toothbrushes to the downstairs bath. We just moved to this house in Feb but we've moved a lot and this is the first house we've had this issue! Does this sound like your dc or is this somethig more that we need to return to the physiatrist for? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
