Evan has a Partial Delay (PD) in the following areas:
Adaptive (PD) - Suggestions from Evaluator: Drinking out of an open cup (which he's done before) & Using the toliet when an adult brings him (Which he does!)
Social/Emotional (PD) (They feel he could benefit from a preschool program.)
Gross Motor (PD) (They added in their notes his score was lowered into the PD area only because he refused to do certain tasks, again a listening issue.)
The Gross Motor we (DH & I & the evaluator) would have not come out even PD if Evan cooperated, As when he came home he did every Motor Skill they asked him to do - fine at home.
The other 2 areas are very little PD so there won't be any therapy needed for them.
These next areas are considered Developmental Delay (DD)
Fine Motor (DD) - he doesn't hold a crayon the proper way. They said to work with him at home with this. And when building blocks to not use his "Free" hand to hold the others so they don't fall away.
Receptive Language: His score was a 59. His Percentile is 1. And his Age Equivalent was 1 years, 6 months. That makes it a delay of 44%.
Expressive Language: His score was a 73%. His Percentile was 4%. And his Age Equivalent was 1 year, 10 months. That was a 31% delay.
Total Language: Score: 62%. Percentile: 1%. Age: 1 year, 7 months. Age Equv: 1 year, 7 months. 40% Delayed.
This makes me SOOO sad. I did not realize my baby boy was this far behind. He is 2 years & 9 Months. So that makes him a full year and some behind. I could cry! The lady who spoke with us today felt like it was a listening issue and that he is stubborn. I hope he can pick things up before school!
I'm sorry hun. Are they going to be starting him on therapy soon? I am still waiting on Tasiya's eval report. I am so nervous. I think Tasiya has a listening issues too. I know she hears me but she still doesn't listen to me. It's so frustrating at times.
I would check into if your school district has a special needs preschool program. Call the student services in your school district. I tell you what, the program here did wonders for Cody! He went from a 13 month level to a 27 month level with his speech. That's a vast improvement. They also have OT & PT at these preschools too. And it will help with the social skills.
The way ours does it is all kiddos are tested. The ones who test below the scores are considered in need of the program and are bussed to school and also attend for free. Then there are the "peer examples" of children who are at or above level so the other children can learn by example. Those children are not bussed to school and the parents pay a $500/year tuition. Of course every school district is different. I was just telling you how ours operates. And children are eligible for preschool as soon as they turn 3 years old. So it's something to look into.
Start with what the doctor suggests with the therapies and go from there. If you need to know any more information, feel free to ask!
Thank you KimberlyD0 for my absolutely beautiful siggy!
