neurologist befor?We finally got Christophers ped.to get us into one.He say he would call Rileys Childrens Hosptiol in Indy.and get us in.They are to call in 2 weeks to set up the app.I am not sure what they are going to do and I would love any ideas on what to ask them about.I know that christopoher has had stareing spells and that can mean a sizer(sp) and ped said something about lack of physicalogic(sp)Developmant and uncordanited git,so I am not sure what eles to ask.Of course we are asking about all the Dx we have on him and hopefuly they will tell us if and what it is for sure (aspegers,pdd ect.)Thanks for any ideas on what to ask and what to expect.Tammy

Tammy- we go on March 2. The nurse told me to bring any information we can t o help. I have a statement from his speech and dt but still have to get one from he ot. I can only tell you what happened when I went to the first neurologist. They tried to ask Tj questions-duh he has a major speach delay, and she just watched him as she asked me questions about the pregnancy,infant stage and so on. The first neuro decided he needed an eeg, fragile x blood test and a chomomsome 15 duplication blood test, She also didnt want to do anything for 6 months. My ped. said to take him to another one asap so that is March 2. Can I ask where about you live? I live in nOrthwest IN around the gary area. If I go before you I will let you know what happens.

We say Elizabeth Magno im Merrilville because of our insurance. She wa scold and unfreindly. Our ped recommended Dr Kormen(sp?) also in Merriville, TJs therapist all agree he is great and very aggressive with the diagnosis. I can give you his number if you want. He is out of the University of Chicago. I just really want him to tell me what he dont have kwim? I am in Hammond. Email me if you want my number to chat sometimes.
