Through the clouds and fog we saw this beautiful sight!
Kind of like working through the layers of our littles lately.
We peek, we shine, we push, we pull, and we mostly seek.
For some the start of school brings an abundance of joy for both parent and child.
In our home, with our littles, school is a time of trials, testing, and bright spots, like the picture above of learning and growing.
We have decided we will really use this year to seek some answers for some of our challenges.
But it can look like this---
Caleb giving such varied answers at the eye doctor, that she finally has to test him like a very little child to get to the answers without asking him.
Answer for this question is no vision problems and she believes only some small areas that she showed me some therapy to work on to strengthen some things.
It can also look like this--
Hannah working with her speech therapist (testing so we can get an 'official diagnosis'), she answers every rhyming question correctly!
Oh by the way she can not rhyme at all, she does not 'get' the concept!
Thankfully her therapist has worked with her long enough to know this and score her accordingly.
Answer through 2 of the 3 days of testing--Hannah does have Auditory Processing Disorder (APD or CAPD)
So where does his put us on this road--a few steps in and a few steps back.
We are presently working on finding someone or some group that will do a comprehensive evaluation on Hannah and possibly Caleb.
We are not so much wanting labels, as the knowledge of how we can help her within her limitations and abilities.
So we will be looking at psychological issues (trauma), emotional issues (attachment), developmental issues (malnutrition), IQ issues (educational), and the whole range of learning disabilities.
As you can see it would be helpful to have one evaluation that could take into account all areas instead of piecemealing it.
Praying that God would lead us in the right direction, that we may be able to get some answers, and like the picture above start pushing back the clouds to let the kids shine through!
