Hi everyone,I got some troubling news about
my daughter yesterday & I am feeling sad & a bit worried,& I just need to vent a little.
A few weeks ago I got my daughter(3.5 yrs old)enrolled into a school that works w/ developmentally delayed children,& this past week they had evaluations done by an early childhood developement specialist & a child psychologist.Well,yesterday they told me that Jasmine is severely delayed in her gross motor skill developement,& she scored a 3 out of 20.
I've always realised that she was a little behind in her physical developement,she didn't even walk on her own until she was 22 months old.During that time,her doc sent us to a pediatric neurologist,who performed an MRI & an EEG.The neuro was concerned that she had a neurological disorder that was caused by premature birth due to extreme complications during my last trimester(I got a perforation).Anyhow,the tests didn't show anything.
The school has suggested that I take her back to the neuro doc for more tests.I am feeling a little worried & very heartbroken over all this.As I am sure that all you parents feel the same,I just want her to live the best life that she can.No matter what the outcome of the tests this time,everything will still be ok,just a little harder for her in the years ahead.
Thanks to all of you who took the time to read this & letting me cry on your shoulder.
PS.....I forgot to mention that Jasmine did score high on the cognitive tests,18 out of 20.
