After venting to both Rickey and my mom last night about what happened at D’s appointment, they both made a good point. What that psychologist saw in an hour and a half does not negate what we and the specialists see and know. Rickey asked me why I was so concerned with a label from a neuro psych assessment?? Why am I not satisfied with what our play therapist, SLP, OT, and world-renowned neurologist have told us??
I hate it when he has a point!! 😉
But seriously…..he is right….even the psychologist we saw yesterday didn’t mention a different treatment plan than what we are doing now based on what he calls Diego’s psych issues.
The wonderful life savers that commented on my last post, had some fantastic advice as well. What really sticks out in my mind is to have specialists around us that care about Diego and his progress. I believe that we have that right now. So my quest for a label from a neuropsych assessment will stop. If the powers that be in the school district do not want to pay attention to the label we have received from the neurologist, they will most definitely pay attention to the challenges Diego has. I can’t predict the future and I can’t change what seems to be quite a stubborn thought process in others.
I am at peace with this.
I have to be.
There are other things on my plate that require my emotional energy and attention, like the impending custody battle and figuring out if this chromosome abnormality is an issue.
OH!!! and my wedding!!
I can’t express the love and support that I feel from my online family and the family I have around me.
I am so very blessed
