So, day one with the psychologist went well. He’s a great guy and he’s very well qualified to do what he’s doing. I liked him very much.
These questions that they give you, things you don’t think about when your first child isn’t typicial. I don’t realize how far off the realm of “typical” that he is. He just seems normal to me.
After going through all the questions he told me that I would be wise to start shopping for therapists and that he’s going to most likely need about 40 hrs a week of ABA therapy…which doesn’t include speech, OT or any other therapy…oh my lordy lord.
I went into the meeting just hoping for recognition that Silas needs help. This is definitely being recognised and the guy is seeing it more as classic autism than NOS or Aspergers. Just as we suspected.
Anyway, all in all I left happy. Just hard to realize the bigness of it all…that’s all.
