She has reached all milestone as required, but, she is 7 and sits in the quiet corner colouring and is bullied and noone sticks up for her. She wants to please mummy and be good but she always know better and just can't.
I will do. Getting so nervous now because it is so important. The school tells me there are no problems despite them asking if she has urine inf because she keeps asking to go to the loo. I tell them she is fine, she is just doing that because she doesn't want to sit and concentrate.
They say she sits ans hums and annoys and alienates the other kis too.
Those positive vibes must have worked. I feel like I am believed!
It was not just the normal paed as I thought, but an ADHD clinic.
The doctor was wonderful. She said she cannot give a diagnosis straight away, but she sees before her a very fidgety and demanding child (this was a good day and that was said in response to me saying she was making me a liar by behaving so well).
She also said that if she has it, she will need an OT app and that takes ages, so she will refer now to start the ball rolling.
Also that if she has it that any meds used to treat it will be contra indicated by her heart condition so she will write to the cardiologist straight away.
So, what do you all think? Is this as positive as I think it is?
Also, why does she need OT for ADHD? <ignorant as just starting with all this>
We are going to have another appointment in four months time. She said it will take that long to get the reports back from the school. I was worried about those, but after her saying about the ADHD nurse going in if they disagree, I feel less so. My DD could fall over a brack in the pavement, or indeed a fallen hair, so I agree with that much.
Just remembered she was asking about sensory stuff and clothes. DD hates tight clothes, luckily she looks awesome in pretty floaty frocks. She asked about fabrics and DD volunteered the information that she likes soft material that she can stroke.
Glad it went well and that the proff is thinking head about waiting times and getting referrals done early.
you can relax a little now you have jumped the first hurdle
Maybe worth asking OT to do a sensory profile with you also to pinpoint sensory issues like tactile (touch or clothing issues) noise or sensory seeking issues etc to give you a bigger picture of what is going on x
