I pride myself at having a pretty good gut, and no, not one formed by eating too many marshmellow/caramel easter eggs, but one that helps me to know when something is off with one of my kids. It comes into play a lot with Elise and diabetes.
If you remember this post, in which I was very skeptical of a diagnosis of Sensory Integration Disorder with Mattias, my Mom-tuition was screaming at me.
Today, we had an appointment with another speech therapist at another clinic, and I was blown away by the difference in the two evaluations. And guess what? This therapist concluded that Mattias is a normal, active, bright, THRIVING little 7 month old. Who DOES NOT need intensive therapy 3 times a week, thankyouverymuch.
Unfortunately, finding this out came at a huge expense to us, because our insurance would not cover another evaluation. We are going to file an appeal with our insurance, and if anyone has some tips for us about this process, please send them our way.
Now... time to go and reward my gut for being so vigilant with some chocolate.
