“The Dr thinks she may have something called Dyspraxia”

20140127-083933 pm.jpgWe finally had an appointment to see a professional of some sort regarding P1s hypermobility. It’s taken take nearly 5 months but today we saw a paediatrician and she was fantastic!!

The Dr asked a lot of questions. I pretty much had to tell P1s life story. I went through everything that happened at the beginning of her life to the things she does or doesn’t do now like undoing buttons.

We’ve had great news though and finally some proper care over here in Kent. The Dr is arranging for P1s new school to sort a physiotherapy programme during lesson time. She says it’s just 5-10minutes of physio weekly I assume but not sure, for a few weeks. One downside of today is that the Dr thinks she may have something called Dyspraxia.

After googling about it I can see some symptoms that really represent P1 but I don’t think the writing, reading and speech applies to her at all. I don’t quite know what this all means for us and whether she’ll actually be officially diagnosed with it. But it’s raised concerns in my little brain!

Overall it’s been quite a productive day and I’m glad we are getting the support we need as a family finally.
