Hello world!

My 7 year old was recently given a full Psych Ed evaluation by the school district. It was enlightening yet slightly disappointing. I found out that my son has a High Functioning Autism or scores high for Autism mainly in the Social aspect. My son also suffers from ADHD, Auditory Processing Disorder and Sensory Integration Disorder (those 2 disorders seem to travel in pairs). I asked the Psychologist if she would like to see him off meds and she declined. She didn’t want him to have a bad day. I felt she should really see the full effect of my son off meds…oh well…… Maybe now we will see results with my son getting help. We had to jump through a lot of hoops in order to get this testing done. If you think your child needs help write a letter to the principle requesting a full Psych Ed evaluation. Don’t hesitate. This is something the school districts are required to provide!!
