My son had the decompression surgery at 2 1/2 years old. He has done well since then.... However he is developmentally delayed, premature birth (2 months) poor gross motor and fine motor, language and speech therapy OT and PT in school and also once a week outside of school. He is not consistent. Diag with CP.
My question is CM and CP related? Anyone know? OT (private) indicates he is also Sensory Processing Disorder
I did so much looking prior to his surgery,,,wished I had seen this group. DS came into our lives when he was 11 months old. I am not sure if he had acid reflux however, he did have some sort of swallowing issues. But I guess he grew out of it??? Not sure. I will have to look to see if the previous foster home indicated if he had problems. I know there was a lack of sleep and issues on his left side.
DS was 2 1/2 for surgery and he is now 4 1/2. I take him to OT and PT once a week (should be twice a week, but there isn't room for him) and he is in special education at school. I was hoping for him to join his twin brother in kindergarden, but I am not sure this will happen, I almost know it won't. DS is still not potty trained.
We are trying to get a psych evaluation. I hope we get it. I want to cross off that I am not crazy like some people think I am.
Oh so he is a twin....how is the twin doing health wise?
Since ur DS is not potty trained, could it be he has bowel and bladder issues?...chiari can affect feeling the urge to go....and many times we have to go and may not make it....this would make it diff to potty train.
Was he checked for tethered cord?
I pray u get ur wish...that would be great for both of them to be together.
