Bramble Patch Academy Posted October 1, 2012 Share Posted October 1, 2012 DD, age 4, has some sensory issues. She also has fine motor delays, had hypotonia at birth, two heart defects, laryngimalacia, and a paralyzed left vocal cord. Her pedi has been reluctant to DX her with SPD. Her genetics tests (basic and macroarray) were normal. Her cognitive skills are excellent. Her vocab is two years ahead. We meet with her pedi tomorrow and he will decide whether to refer her to a neuorologist and a neuropyschologist. The nurse in his office was pushing for an IEP last time we were in. So I have some concerns. First, is it really THAT important to label her? She is in good health. Her ASD snd pulminary stenosis are under control, she is gaining weight... Do we need to know "why"? It doesn't seem important. Second, can they force me to get an IEP or have services at the school? I am no afraid they will scream educational neglect if I don't put her in school.
