Ok, then. The CAPD diagnosis is FINALLY official. Whew. The screening was fascinating to watch, but a little cringe inducing at times, especially when they would ask him to repeat what was just said, and not only were his responses not in the same ball park, they didn’t even make much sense.
This was mainly when they put words in one ear at a time and had him say what was in a specific ear, or in a specific order. Granted, it was a tricky test, but he could.not.do.it. Also, sentences spoken quickly stymied him.
So now I know. Talk slowly.
I have to it’s recommended that I get a neuro-psych eval to determine if it’s simply a matter of his auditory system functioning at the level of a younger child (i.e. “he’ll grow out of it”) or if there’s an underlying language or learning disorder that needs to be addressed. Either situation is possible, as is “he has it, and won’t grow out of it, but we can’t find anything else.” Referrals in the works. Waiting now for appointments.
Is it weird that I’m looking forward to the eval? I really like finding stuff out about how my kids mind works. I want to do neuro-psych evals on ALL my kids, and on me, and my husband, and my siblings, and my parents, and my dog, but insurance industries tend to frown on tests being done for your own entertainment. Whatever.
I guess we can all just take personality tests on line and call it good. Right? Google: enabling self-diagnoses since 2000-something.
