I won't list all the diagnoses here, but I will say that it was not "simply" Sensory Processing Disorder, which we have been dealing with for several years. His sensory issues are now considered part of the Autism Spectrum Disorder, and we are told he is on the "very high-functioning" end, with corresponding attention difficulties and anxieties. Also confirmed was dysgraphia, although it was given a more technical name. We discovered his IQ and named the learning difficulties through a licensed psychologist, and the autism part of things through a specialty pediatrician.
Both of the evaluations were long, but worthwhile, and I'm glad we went through it. We were given quite a few recommendations and official reports which should come in handy in the future.
In addition to the above, we also looked further into the vision issue, and will start vision therapy this summer. I have hope that the vision therapy will make reading easier on him, and have heard that it may improve his ease of writing as well. Crossing my fingers!!
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a sensory guest post for The Jenny Evolution. Check out Sensory Writing: Vertical Writing Builds Core Muscles for some summer sensory fun!
