once she was done with Andy's testing, she told us:
- he intelligence scores were "significantly higher than normal" - his "quirky" behavior and lack of social skills can be attributed to the fact that he can't relate to his classmates.
- His speech/developmental delays and disconnection are/were attributed to PTSD (aka "the Fire").
- She saw NO red flags for ASD - of course he wasn't stimming while he was there
- What she did see was ADD/ADHD
- since Todd has ADD, each of our children is at least 5x more likely to have it than the average child.
TOTALLY not what I was expecting, but good news in any event... who'd think ADD/ADHD was good news! But I think it is an overall better prospect for life. she asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up and why. He told her he wanted to be a family doctor and she said his explanation sounded like an essay from a med school application. crap.. better start saving for med school!
