We had our first session today and she gave me a copy of the eval. For the eval I had to fill out these were the scores: they range from typical performance, probable difference, and definite difference. There is definite difference in 4/6 and in sensory seeking, low endurance/tone, sensory sensitivity, and sedentary. Then probable difference in the other 2 in oral sensory sensitivity and inattention/distractibility.

Then for grasping he is in the age range of 43 months (Ty is 46 months) and visual motor integration is at 40 months.

Then overall it says the eval revealed he has significant delays in upper body strength, hand/finger strength, self-help skills, visual perceptual skills, and sensory integration. Then some delays in fine motor skills.


Phew, that's a lot to write. Lol! So that's it. I feel bad cuz I never really knew, you know? But he's getting help now and that is what matters.

With any theraputic evaluation, there has to be a reason for it and the functioning levels showing. It is because health insurance and even the federal and state governments demand it to give them payment for a service. On the good side, it shows what she will work most with him during his theraputic sessions and how he can reach his full functioning level according to his disability.

Yeah, I need to get with our DDD coordinator for a PT. I forgot to ask our OT if she spoke with her PT friend.

Sounds like you are making good progress to get all the therapies. Does Ty also get private speech? Oral motor therapy with a trained speech therapist might help with the oral issues. It has helped with my ds.
