Feb 6, a 75 minute appointment. I hope the office door has an eyehook lock on it, or Mark will be out of there in a flash!!

So considering the ridiculous progress he's made so far, who wants to place their bets with me that we'll leave with a dx of "normal child, don't waste my time"? I really doubt we'll get that far, but he's certainly NOT the same child that EI assessed in September! We've still got the delays, but not in the 30-40% range we had before.

Wow!! Well, I think any progress is good. And the dev ped WILL notice the quirks.

Ours dx'd Max w/ Asperger's and then the school didn't see it. One of the things they said was that he does make eye contact. Well, yeah, sometimes. Because since he was a toddler I always told him, "Look at my face. Look at my eyes." (I wanted to give him something I hoped would be the least jarring for him to focus on.)

So he DOES have Asperger's but since he can look at you when speaking he just doens't fit the profile.

But your dev ped will see Mark and his quirks. Don't worry.
