Manny's test results

Manny's test results came back today:
Asperger's disorder and ADD of the predominately inattentive type
IQ of 113 which they list as high average
Grade level for her achievement tests
Word reading 6.6 grade
Numerical Operations 6.8 grade
Spelling 8.5 grade
but her motor skills are equilvelant to a 7 year old
she scored 40 or 7% on being able to read or react to emotions.

I'm hoping that today you're not feeling like you are being left to hang out all alone with no other parent (or old person grandparent) to come, sit by your side, throw an arm around you and tell you "Honey, it's gonna be fine, just fine!" Cause I hope you know that there's a whole lot of others out here, in the blogosphere -running the same race as you are right now. And kind of like the cartoon drawing made during the American Revolution of the snake, broken up into 13 segments, just remember "United we stand!" Hang tight with the rest of us and we'll all get through all of this stuff together -sharing whatever information or tips we have learned about Autism, Asbergers, Add, you name it. Sharing the frustrations that come from this baffling thing called autism too. You do know that now, don't you? If you don't, I'm gonna head to Georgia pronto and bop you upside the head and tell you this again then! You don't want me to do that now do you?
Love ya kiddo! You'll lead and teach, guide and yeah, preach too from time to time and Manny will do just fine in the end. Trust me on that one.

April is Autism awarness month. I am sure you already know that.

I am OK with what the Dr Said about the test results. This is like the 4th or 5th time we have gone through this process.

It is more for things like she is in 4th grade but capable of doing work of 6,7,8 graders and possibly higher if she applied herself... This test came from the school insisting she was autistic and me butting heads saying, no, she just needs excellerated classes and it snowballs because the mom is never right against city hall!

Thank you so much for your loving words and support. I do need it. Although I was prepared for the diagnosis, I still took a hit with it and have "taken a nap" (aka hid in my room and cried) gone to the BR excessive amounts of time (and composed myself) and took an abnormally long time to feed the horses (you know).

I am feeling better now. Reading your kindness really helped to boost my moral! Thank you so much for stopping by and thinking of me!

That sounds like a handful for you to deal with. Knowing what it is can only help you find solutions. Stay strong!

I read that IQ's do increase with age so 113 at her age is pretty damn good.
And even at 36, my motor skills are pretty questionable.

But forewarned is forearmed, right? I know a few people from online that have Aspergers and they are some of the funniest and most intelligent people I chat with.

Fermi - thanks for your support. I (and Molly) are doing just fine with it. I sat down and rephrased what the doctor said and we are good with it.

Nypinta - Yea, I can believe that - Molly comes out with some humdingers at times.
