My 4 1/2 year old son was diagnosed with dyspraxia about 1 year ago. I have been noticing changes in him as he develops that lean more toward aspergers. His fustration, his poor social interaction. He will want something very badly one moment and then when it is about to be given to him he cries hysteriacly saying no, no, no I dont like that.
He has been in speec therapy for about 1 year now and I do not see much improvement in real life situations. He seems to be respoinding to the speech therapists, however at home he refuses to pratice with me.
I am beginning to wonder if he has been misdiagnosed. I have a phsyc eval scheduled thru the school system in 2 weeks and a privite physc eval in 4 weeks.
Because of e-mail issues we did not receive your request for information until well after your scheduled evaluations. If you had those evaluations and would like to share the results and ask further questions, please do so.
I had those problems too as a child.....every one of them,and I don't have Aspergers Syndrome. I have no problems with understanding emotional/social cues. My mother told me as a baby...when I was doing something wrong,she would give me a look and I would stop dead in my tracks. My problem was that I was always hypersensitive,highly emotional .....I was very shy too.....so that affected poor social interaction........besides having speech problems and coordination problems and children calling me retard....well that took away my self esteem.
Dyspraxia and Aspergers tend to have overlapping symptoms like sensory integration issues. the main thing is that Aspergers have problems understanding emotional/social cues. Another thing is that speech delays rule out Aspergers....but not autism.
