Thank you so much for your reply. I am still digesting what he said and it is great to read your sensible take on this. I am not feeling very sensible right now. the accidental hitting was according to him, I have no recollection of anything that might be it. I am concerned because he went through a Hyde and jekyll stage when he was younger and he has been very intense ever since. He is not afraid, more angry. I will let this play out a bit more as u suggested. Thank you...
Hi, it's been a while. I am unsettled by my 8 yr old sudden .... Revelation? ... that he has a doppelgänger following him around tHrough the day. According to him, this creature looks exactly like him, watches him and tries to copy him. It is black and white and does not talk. He says it has been following him for a few years now and it is getting stronger. He feels it wants to be him, and it wants to get him into trouble by taunting him near other peopleso that he ends up...
Hi, I don't post here often but right now it is the only place that comes to mind... My 8 yr old suddenly told me that he has a doppelgänger following him around. He is not frightened, just angry to be constantly watched. He said it looks exactly like him, and tries to copy him and feeds off his energy. It is black and white, and does not speak. He also says that it's original form is the total opposite of him, and it wants to be him, and to get him into...
I think the diagnoses you finally had are so much more helpful than if you are just told that he is on the spectrum. He has A LOT on his plate and little wonder if he is such a bundle of angst. Sounds like he is just trying to survive in there. I really won't hold it against him though i know how very trying it can be. Do you have a list of interventions that the teachers can look into? Like a quiet place he can go to when it all gets too much, seating him next to a quiet...
This is a great idea!Op, my five year old is similar too. Talks non stop at home, but very quiet outside unless his elder brother is there. He just started preschool early this year because I felt he was not ready to be away from me any earlier for emotional and health reasons. When I wanted to start part time work outside of home, he was very worried and verbally regressed to baby talk.He is extremely self conscious and is terrified of making any social mistakes outside...
 Yes! This! Our combination was gym, TKD and swimming. During the evaluation he did better on the balancing pole than on the ground, LOL. Nothing came easy, his gross motor planning was poor, his core was weak and his body was unbalanced. but as Linda_on_the_move said, it was normal kid stuff, with socialising thrown in and it was waaaayy cheaper than private intensive therapy. Because of the activities, we could cut back on therapy over the long term and simply go back...
Millet flour makes a good base flour and has a mild taste that goes well in many things. Teff flour is great for adding flavour and nutrients.  
Hi I saw in another thread that your child has eczema. Mine too and was a poor sleeper until we got it under control, which took like three years. He would wake up many times a night to nurse and cry and he was a very tired baby.  I have heard the same from other mothers wtih eczemic children.   You mentioned she gets the bulk of her nutrition at night. Does she nurse out of hunger, or out of comfort? If it was hunger, could she also have gone into a night-time...
 I'm so sorry to hear about your DD. I can totally understand how you feel being stretched between the needs of two children. I have a 2e kid with sensory/vision issues who could not read and an allergic child with severe eczema. I'm not sure about your financial situation, but while I was at it, I felt constantly guilty when I had to consider whose doctor's/ therapist's bill I was ready to commit to, and whose needs I was going to attend to first. I ended up...
  I was waiting for someone else to say it but anyway....maybe this IS also her? When I first read your post I was thinking it didn't sound like ADHD at all to me, more like vision issues resulting in behaviour that looks like ADHD. Just a thought eh? I have no experience with ADHD, but I have a child with vision issues. The first time anyone said he had short attention span was when he went to nursery school and I was totally taken aback because that was not what I see...
