Good to hear that! Did you have your hearing yet Deb?

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:22:48 PM)
we are settling out of court tomorrow

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:22:57 PM)
Best of Luck!!!

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:23:18 PM)
You'll be in my thoughts!

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:23:18 PM)
the school is paying for the APD eval

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:23:23 PM)

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:23:49 PM)
and they are doing the reading eval and the written and oral language eval

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:25:06 PM)
That is GREAT Deb! I am glad to hear that! Is the school doing the testing or do you pick the doctor? I got a question...We are almost done FFWD. and Jon is still behind in BC and PI.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:25:34 PM)
Did anyone else have simular problems with BC / PI?

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:25:46 PM)
I amsi excited

Carol (ID=3) (Aug 7, 2001 8:25:57 PM)
Oh Debbie, I am so happy for you

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:26:13 PM)
we had problems with OMDFF

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:26:16 PM)
Hey Deb... Did Sarah ever have a speech/language eval yet?

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:26:35 PM)
for FFw?>

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:28:29 PM)
Jon has expressive/receptive language delay and APD.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:28:47 PM)
Does Sarah have the ex/receptive language delay too?

Carol (ID=3) (Aug 7, 2001 8:29:14 PM)
Peggy, how do you know she has that, by the APD test?

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:29:14 PM)
we did pre and post testing with FFW

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:29:26 PM)
my only problem with the FFW is I feel as if we have lost some of the aquired skills

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:29:50 PM)
we are doing more testing for language and reading delays now.

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:31:02 PM)
Deb is going to join us in the chat in just a minute

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:31:39 PM)
(This user has entered CAPD: From the Heart) (IP =

Carol (ID=3) (Aug 7, 2001 8:31:45 PM)
Debbie, I'm still on the fence about the neuro-psych testing. What more can they tell me?

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:31:49 PM)
Hi Deb.

Carol (ID=3) (Aug 7, 2001 8:31:51 PM)
Hi Deb

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:31:58 PM)
speaking of Ms. Cheerleader..*LOL*

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:32:01 PM)
Hi all!

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:32:26 PM)
Carol do the doctors feel as if there may be other trouble?

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:32:35 PM)

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:32:52 PM)
thanks Deb!!

Carol (ID=3) (Aug 7, 2001 8:32:58 PM)
ADD, but we have that diagnosis from last year, before the APD issue came up and the doctor thought it could be the APD.

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:33:14 PM)
=) =)

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:33:34 PM)
ask them then why they want to do the neuro psych and what their goals are

Carol (ID=3) (Aug 7, 2001 8:33:35 PM)
Gonna get booted off AOL again, I think

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:34:16 PM)
i plea the 5th about AOL!

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:34:25 PM)
Ha... Ha...

Carol (ID=3) (Aug 7, 2001 8:34:36 PM)
She said it would give us a better indication if it's ADD or APD and maybe meds or more recommendations could be added. I don't think it's AOL, my computer is on the fritz>

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:35:04 PM)
*LOL*....speaking of AOL Debbie....our bill says 0701 after the billing.

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:35:05 PM)
i dont know Carol, I'd bet it's AOL..*L*

Carol (ID=3) (Aug 7, 2001 8:35:07 PM)
I picked up a virus and had to delete the INTED file, I think anyway, it has fits now

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:35:29 PM)
then call the 1-88-265-8003 and talk to billing

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:35:52 PM)
Hey Carol... They thought my son was ADD(inattentive type) but he has language delays, and APD. He also has developemental reading problems.

Carol (ID=3) (Aug 7, 2001 8:35:54 PM)
Someday when I am old and gray, I plan to re install everything and start from scratch. Years to go then

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:36:08 PM)
oops 1-888-265-8003

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:36:15 PM)
It can all be so confusing!!! And each kid is different..

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:36:26 PM)
Thanks Debbie....I 'll call tomorrow then.

Carol (ID=3) (Aug 7, 2001 8:36:52 PM)
I think it's all APD myself but not a doctor or audiologist. She is in the 3 rd grade reading 5th grade level so no reading prob. or language issues. Just the focus fazing out in school

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:36:54 PM)
call early early

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:37:01 PM)
I don't know if the "experts"/doctors know everything yet.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:37:13 PM)
and I think they go to meds to quick.

Carol (ID=3) (Aug 7, 2001 8:37:14 PM)
I soooo agree with that, Peggy

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:37:19 PM)
Peggy in all honesty many of the experts dont know yet

Carol (ID=3) (Aug 7, 2001 8:37:41 PM)
All I was really after was the recommendation that she not lose recess if her work isn't finished.

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:37:42 PM)
What time is early 6AM? I'll be up then....probably won't be back home til much later once I leave.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:37:51 PM)
I think they need some good research done! :)

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:37:55 PM)
would be a good idea

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:38:22 PM)
Dr Moncrieff is really working on some exciting research and so are some other auds

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:38:36 PM)
Okie dokie....I'll call bright and early then. Thanks muchly! =)

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:38:39 PM)

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:38:41 PM)

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:38:52 PM)

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:41:42 PM)
I'm sorry I don't think I can make it... I am in FL that week, but with my 2 boys, it will be hard.

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:42:19 PM)
That is such a bummer Peggy. =( I'm going with my hubby, my parents are keeping the boys overnight for us.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:42:49 PM)
My husband is staying behind this trip. so it is me and the boys. I'm staying with my brother in Pt.St.Lucie.

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:42:59 PM)
I can't wait to meet Dr. J....I'm going armed with all of my info on Travis! Poor Dr. J!!

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:43:37 PM)
Not sure how far away that is from Orlando...have heard of it though.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:44:06 PM)
Good for you Deb. I chatted with him a while ago and he said he will try to do Disney when he is ther too. Pt St. Lucie is 'bout 2-2.5 hrs on the east.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:44:23 PM)
I am flying into/out of Orlando.

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:45:19 PM)
Oh, ok, wasn't sure. Oh, that makes it even worse Peggy, flying in/out of Orlando, and not being able to go! Hmmmm, unless your brother could/would watch them for the day? Possibly?

debbie (ID=4) (Aug 7, 2001 8:45:37 PM)
i'm trying to get carol back in..just a sec

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:45:55 PM)

Well, we can all get a good nights rest toight.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:55:26 PM)
I am at work til 12:30ish.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:55:34 PM)
I work nites too.

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:55:36 PM)

I'm here now...

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:56:11 PM)
We start school, it's back up at 6 AM tomorrow morning. I was liking sleeping until 7:30 or so!

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:56:12 PM)
I would like to meet you all. You have been a great help! If I can, I will.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:56:55 PM)
I know my nephew starts soon too. Good Luck this school year! You do charter school? right?

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:57:15 PM)
Maybe you can plan the Disney time around your last weekend....check things out with your brother, see what you guys can come up with.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:57:49 PM)
I will.

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:58:09 PM)
Yes, we do. I am really happy with Travis' teacher this year. (3rd grade) She has her masters in reg. and special ed. So, she should be quite good with him.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:58:40 PM)
My son Jon is going into 3rd grade too. I hope he gets someone good!!!

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:59:23 PM)
Yesterday, at orientation, I gave her my APD packet my Mom and I did last year, and some info on his SI stuff, plus his psych eval I just got back. I rreally think it will be a good match.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:59:25 PM)
Travis and Jon seem to be a little alike from previous chats..

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:59:42 PM)

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 8:59:58 PM)
We are finishing FFW

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 8:59:58 PM)
Yep, I think so Peggy.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 9:00:29 PM)
I hope it helps! It is a lot of time and money. I will be really disappointed if it doesn't.

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 9:00:38 PM)
He'll be doing Earobics again in school, they just have to hook up his computer. It won't work on the other ones they already have in the classroom.

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 9:01:08 PM)
Debbie did FFW with Sarah. I think she was pleased with the results.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 9:02:06 PM)
Good Luck! Debbie really does a lot to help other Moms! I hope things work out for her with her school!!!

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 9:03:11 PM)
She sure does! She is a true God send to many! She sure was for me! I think things at school will get better for her. She's a real trooper that one!

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 9:04:47 PM)
At least they are starting with the testing. I have to call DuPont Children's hospital to make another CAPD eval.. His last was last October and they wanted another done in 1 year for follow up. It takes a couple months to get the apptment. So we'll see.

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 9:06:10 PM)
And it's about time too! I am just sooooo happy they are doing the testing! Travis had a re-eval last had been 4 years almost since the last one.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 9:07:34 PM)
It is a real pain to have to go through the testing... expecially since they don't have all the answers to the problem!

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 9:08:17 PM)
I agree. There are always missing puzzle pieces to this, always!

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 9:08:45 PM)
That is what I find too!!! So frustrating! .

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 9:09:14 PM)
I want to go into the field of LDs and find the answers!!! I really wish I could.

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 9:09:36 PM)
Talking to other Moms helps!

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 9:10:09 PM)
Very frustrating Peggy! Yes, it really does. You can talk to people who really, really know what you're going through. Makes a huge difference!

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 9:11:18 PM)
Well, I have to get caught up at work. It was really nice chatting with you tonight! If I can, I'll see you in Orlando! Have a Great night!

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 9:11:39 PM)
You too Peggy! Hope to see you in Orlando....try! =)

Peggy (ID=5) (Aug 7, 2001 9:11:42 PM)
Maybe I'll see ya in the chat next week! Take care!

deb (ID=6) (Aug 7, 2001 9:11:49 PM)
