    Thanks for posting these – it helps me to remind myself what more I can do for my child – my son who is 14 yr old & has ASD and not ADHD.

    I had a private neuro psych eval done & just got the results, and trying to figure out what they mean.

    For example, it mentioned that he may benefit from Sensory Integration therapy from an OT as he demonstrates the need to do more than one activity at a time suggesting he is working to meet a sensory need. We did get an OT eval done before COVID and met with her a few times, but there wasn’t too many things she can do for him besides craniosacral therapy. He tried it two times and then COVID happened, and haven’t been back and unsure what I should do or not do now. I do know it was really expensive for a little bit of bang from the provider who we went to which was at a hospital.

    Thank you for clearly stating the path/process of how to get help and where help can come from for a child.

    Thank you for the information. My son had a private Neuropsychological evaluation after we were not very convinced with the results from the school evaluation as the conclusion was that, even he has executive functions to be addressed, he is gifted and bored. The private evaluation states a learning disability but the school is not acknowledging it. My son also had an OT Evaluation before Covid and was recommended therapy for Sensory Integration but the school is not addressing that either. I am trying to understand what to do so my son’s needs get addressed as he is not writing and or reading at grade level and his behavior is not changing but it’s very predictable when he has to write or read, or there are math word problems (he is very good at math if words are not involved)
