Hi all, this is my first post here, hoping for some guidance...
Long story shorter- my son, now 5 years old, was the absolute easiest baby until he was between 2-3 years old. From there it has been insane... automatic shrieking when anything doesn’t go his way (from dropping something to not getting what he wants), trouble understanding things (almost like a loose connection somewhere), extremely defiant, loads of anxiety, poor/delayed gross & fine motor skills...
As of right now, his current diagnosis are:
- Congenital Encephalopathy manifesting as ADHD
- Aphasia manifesting as an expressive, receptive, and pragmatic language disorder with articulation problems.
- Developmental Coordination Disorder manifesting as delayed fine motor and sensory processing skills, leading to poor self regulation and Dysgraphia.
These diagnosis were given by our developmental pediatrician a few months ago.
At the time, I wasn’t concerned with what was on paper, I wanted to help make life easier for him, as everyday something seems like a struggle. Today, while at his 5 year old well-check with our normal pediatrician, she asked several questions about his diagnosis - which brought me home, searching for answers, as well.
Anyone else have similar issues?
