Hmmmm...odd they want to do this now after we had his MRI last month. The MRI the teachers more or less demanded and pestered me to schedule. Because they just knew Dino's late development meant something was wrong in his brain and not anxiety related.
Well, Dino's MRI results did come back and.......he was completely normal. Absolutely nothing wrong with his brain functions. Absolutely nothing wrong with his brain.
Yet another doctor who believes Dino has some anxiety issues.
Next week, I will once again hear how my son does not know how to speak and cannot play with the other children. And I will once again tell them he speaks in full sentences (sometimes non-stop) at home, imaginative plays with his sisters and brothers, has two 'bestest friends' at his other school, plays and shouts on the playground at the other school. Then they will once again tell me something is wrong because he is not talking at school. And I will once again bring up possible anxieties.
See many a time Dino has come from this school sad because they don't listen to his answers and ask him the same questions over and over. "They don't listen" he tells me with tears streaming down his face. Then he tells he's 'a little sick' and 'needs to stay home from (school name)'.
Sounds like an anxiety-issue to me. But not to them. At least not based on their current comments. At this point I am still greeted with snickers and rolled eyes when I mention anxiety and possible social mutism. I am treated like a parent in denial.
I will learn more next week. I pray it goes well and they will listen to me, the mommy, and the doctors. I might be asking too much from this group.
