Got the Results from the CDC...

First off I find this funny... (humor me... the ER trip wasn't fun, but it got things moving.) On Dec 12, I got the report from Genetics that I have been waiting on since May... and yesterday we got the report from CDC and it mentions Benji's hypoglycemia. I just find it funny... had the ER trip not happened... I wonder if I would have either report.

Anyhow... as of right now... Benji's developmental diagnosis is 313.9 Disorder of Infancy, Childhood, or Adolescence and 315.32 Severe Expressive and Receptive Language Impairment by History. That tells me that there is something going on but we aren't quite sure what it is yet. But that's okay. The reason it's okay is because Vanderbilt Children's has given recommendations.

RECOMMENDATIONS:
Continue TEIS.
Upon leaving TEIS Benji should be enrolled in a developmental preschool.
Pursue Occupational therapy and see how best to deal with the sensory and motor issues.
Get with speech and consult on how best to use the Picture Exchange Communication System in home and later in school. Home visual schedule too.

So... we are going to get the visual schedules going and plan more on outings and such. I got lucky today at Micah's Pre-K Christmas party. Benji got very overwhelmed but we got him back under control before we had a complete meltdown. That and he got some pringles. LOL...
