Thank you so much for the welcome!


The behavioral evaluation first came about when DD was 3. I went to her pediatrician and explained (AGAIN...lol) how I just felt something wasn't right. I felt that her behavior was a manifestation of other issues (i.e. she wasn't just a "wild" kid, or a kid with no discipline or boundaries).

Our IEP for now has his speech, OT, class room modification. we're switching schools this week and at the school were leaving weve had the school psych. observing and evaluting looking for some stratigies to help him cope betterBut thats all subject to change with the new school setting and well be having another IEP probably next week.


We need to get more information in our teachers hands and get your doctor to give you a refreal for at ocupational thearapist. The OTs seem to be our allies!!!

The IEP should go with your child to the new school (assuming it is a public school). Unless you want

Welcome!

I think that an evaluation with an OT will be a huge step towards getting your daughter the help she needs! Keeping my fingers crossed that it happens soon.

How does she do in school? With friends?

My daughter's biggest struggle is with her peers- she is very tactile defensive and loses it over one of her friends touching her in anyway. So I know how frusturating it can be to see them in social situations and just have trouble.

Keep us updated and good luck!

Hi Kelly-


The first thing I am going to say is that you have to trust your intuition. I have an older son who was "the perfect baby".
