Well Dominic had his Early Ed screening the other day and it looks like someone finally has realized he needs some extra help besides me and daddy!! I felt like all this time I've been talking to a wall. The screening had 7 areas they look at and they grade as adequate, recheck, or evaluate. Here's his scores.
#1 Hearing- Adequate
#2 Vision- Adequate
#3 Motor Skills--Fine Motor is Recheck and Gross Motor is Adequate
#4 Speech & Language- Language needs evaluated and Articulation needs rechecked
#5 Cognitive- Evaluate
#6 Social- Evaluate
#7 Self Help- Adequate
So the results are, he sees and hears everything ok and will do things on his own BUT he doesn't speak like a 3 yr old, he's very bossy and doesn't follow directions or pay attention for more than a few minutes. Also noted: Still in Diapers and Scribbles only
The 3-5 yr old staff will be calling us to schedule another more indepth screening this time around. I was hoping this would be the screening to tell us whether they may accept him in the program but it looks like he has to do a 3rd screening with these other specialists. If he can't get into their program then I will have to try to get him into Alex's grade school preschool program and if not there, well we'll find somewhere else because the boy needs 2 yrs of preschool. He's too high strung and disobedient to just put straight into Kindergarten. I can only imagine how many times I'm going to have to come get this guy from the principal's office.
