After Finally Seeing a pead (after a 2 and a half yr wait) yesterday and finally organising hearing and speech therapy and early intervention.
The pead we saw did a couple of tests and examinations of ds and came out with a that ds is 12 months delayed both mentally and physically we knew he was delayed but 12 months did shock us at first but then when the shock wears off and start to think yes ds is much more like a 2 yr old then a 3 yr old.
Over the nest couple of months we are jam packed with gp app's OT apps ophthalmologist app endo app the speech, hearing and early intervention appointments so we do have a rather full schedule and lots of people helping.
And Ds's pead said to rebook back in a couple of months since we are going to be very busy.
It's just a bit confusing really like it's no ones fault we all understand that just how far behind he is it kinda kicks me in the guts a bit more iykwim but that's the way ds is and we love him the way he is just a bit of a shock to actually hear it from a pead.
So i was wondering if there are any mums or dads on here that have children with both physical and mental delays or just the one and i would love to hear how you deal with it like what have any of your Ot's suggestions peads suggestions and what you do to help your child out from day to day? or do you not do anything to different?
Thanks so much
