merry gardens Posted October 6, 2012 Share Posted October 6, 2012 Topic prompted from another thread and my own struggles... Have you come to terms with your child's special needs? If so, how did you do it? Were evaluations and professionals along the way helpful, unhelpful--or both? Are you still on the journey? How far along are you? How much farther do you think this journey might leave? I'm still on the journey. My ds has a diagnosis now, but it took a long time. Some professionals gave me false assurance that ds was fine when I first went for evaluations before K. Ds is dyslexic and I didn't know it at the time, but I was seeing early signs of dyslexia. Ds also has memory struggles that might go further than just dyslexia. I don't know. He's never had an IQ test. He's had a few evaluations now and the results and helpfulness depend greatly on the skills of the evaluator. I suspect he's 2e, but I could be wrong. Lately I'm wishing I had an IQ score, but if it came back low, I might not push him as hard and if it came back high I might expect more than he's able to give. We took a break over summer and ds seemed perfectly normal. We start back at homeschooling and academic pursuits and...:svengo:. Still on the journey. How about you?
