Sam has his well visit today.
KNOCKING on my head, he is a pretty healthy kid. So, we really do only see my pediatrician about 4 times a year- TOPS. Occassional ear infection when he was a kid, occassional fever but simple stuff.
Today she asks Sam how things are going in school he says good-- then goes back to reading the High Lites magazine.. she asks me.. "good?" I knock on my head.. LOL.. start saying that I think with all the support he has this year (compared to last), he is doing great. She asks me if he is mainstreamed.. I tell her "collab class this year... still getting occupational therapy, physcial therapy... special bus-- doing great! Just got a note from teacher how pleased theyve been. He is just doing super!"
She tells me she has health forms for school... and then asks if I want her to put his Aspie diagnosis on the school forms. I say, sure...they know, but it's probably better to put it on there...
THEN she says.. "You know, I dont see it. I never really have. I dont think he is on the spectrum."
MY BLOOD BOILED! You see him for maybe 1/2 hour to 40 minutes a YEAR and your surprised you dont see it?!
I actually said back... "Really, you dont see him long enough to make that call."
Im a little pissed and hurt.
