katalaska Posted July 23, 2008 Share Posted July 23, 2008 My 8.5 yo dd is FINALLY getting a reasonable language evaluation through a speech/language pathologist. Testing is not quite complete but in some areas she is one to two years behind where she should be for her age. She has, from this testing, a diagnosis of "language disorder" (as opposed to delay) suggesting aberrant development. It looks like we're headed toward a diagnosis of APD/CAPD (whichever term is more up-to-date). So...how can we go about nailing down that diagnosis? What other professional should my dd see? What other evaluations does she need? And, the most important question...can this be remediated? Will it "go away" if we can find the right therapy/treatment? Or will she continue to struggle with following directions, making sense of stories, and getting along socially? I recently finished the book "Like Sound Through Water: A Mother's Journey Through Auditory Processing Disorder" but the author's son's symptoms don't really match my daughter's. We've already been down the road of autism spectrum/Asperger's/high-functioning autism and ruled out all of those. I'm just not sure where we're headed next. Anyway care to share some insight?
