Post subject: What a year and still no answers...
Well I have not been on here for sometime, but thought as it's a new year I want to get back onto things.
My son has many issues and has been for so many tests and know definate answers, they say he is about 6 months behind in development. This is what he has so far:
Very underweight - 18lbs at nearly 2 years of age
low muscle tone - requires piedro boots and physio
Speach delay - currently waiting to see an SLT
Cafe au lait marks
His genetic tests will be restarting this summer, so he will be 2.5 yrs of age, so more worry to go through waiting for results. It's been very challenging to say the least. But other than his problems, he eats very well, very happy fun loving little boy
and I am pleased to say he finally WALKED at 22 months, never thought it would happen, so Mummy was so happy and still am..

sorry u hav no answers still. We a closer to an answer, Georgias doctor think she has a communication disorder. She is nw about 14 months behind with her speech and understanding, she has nt progressed for past 6 months, doctorsaid she will hav additional needs for the nxt 5 years at least. She is having speech therapy once a week and will be startin the early support nursery in nxt couple of months.

Yes Piedro's have been a god send, lucily they clinic has some on loan for him back in summer so that really helped as he didnt get an appt to see orthotist till Dec, the waiting list around here is a joke!
What is this about nursery funding? as his com peadatrician mentioned this that Joshua could have a helpw with nursery funding but didnit know what this entailed.
If Georgia has un undiagnosed disorder I am part of a group called SWAN - symptoms without a name. It's great so many kiddies on their with lots of different issues but don't have a reason/label. If you want more info let me know and I will send u details.

thanx for that info hotcrossbun.
how is joshua getting on angel delight?
georgia has been reviewed by her paediatrician and she suspects she has autism so has refered he to be assesed to see where she is on the autistic spectrum. so she has been refered to a communications clinic, educational physchologist and more in depth speech therapy.
