Four months ago my 23 month old daughter was diagnose with developmental dyspraxia and probible verble dyspraxia. She is of short stature but found to be above average intelligence. Dr's want a chromisone test but the insurance wont pay for it saying its routine bloodwork. Alot is not paid for! It comes out of my pocket and I can not afford it. She is recieveing speech therapy 2ce a week and PT 2ce a week as well. At 23 months she is just started standing and vocalises 4 words but can sign at least 12. Her low motor skills prevent her from doing them the correct way sometimes but we get the point. We were also told she suffers from Central Hypotonia and boarderline Microcephaly. What does this all mean? I had to change from a General Doctor as she was pointing the finger at me and said she was a Failure to Thrive baby!! I should add that I have two other girls age 9 and 18 and they are great, no problems ever. Child protective was called too! Thank God I had the sence to get a PEDs Doctor who refered me to a developmental specialist right a way! Child Protective did an investigation and recieved the reports for all Drs but they had no choice but to find it indicated. No further steps were taken. They left me alone but the damage was already done. Now I constantly question peoples motives and I do not take my baby to public places to avoid their constant questions. Is anyone in my shoes? I could use someone to chat with.
