This is how Asher's tests results broke down: For grading purposes, the scale goes up to 115, but a score of 100 is average/good.
Using hands and body (Gross/Fine Motor Skills) - 95 Problems here relate to poor head control/strength which we can work on by adding more "tummy time" to his daily routine.
Eating, Dressing and Toileting (Self-Help/Adaptive Skills - 55 This one relates to the fact that he is tube fed and needs some oral motor therapy. We are seeing an OT next week relating to this and have been referred for 30 min a week for the next 6 months which is when he will be evaluated again.
Expressing and Responding to Feelings and Interacting with Others (Social/ Emotional ) - 95
Playing, Thinking , Exploring (Academic/Cognitive including pre-literacy skills) - 93
Understanding and Communicating (Receptive and Expressive Communication) - 95
Overall, he is right where he should be developmentally in a lot of areas....which is very reassuring.
He is still on the thin side when compared to other children his age, but when looking back to where he started, he is looking pretty good!!! Check out the meat on those legs!! ;) In fact, I think this will be the last time he can wear that cute little onesie that I like so much...it's about to bust at the buttons ;)
