Perhaps I am impatient as Moose was only tested last Monday; however, when I was told to expect a phone call and mail but don't receive it, I get a little testy. So I called (again) up to the doctor's office. I first spoke with her (she may regret calling me from that number now) and she said the report was dictated and edited so it should have gone out on Friday. She gave me a number to call to talk with Jessica who should have mailed it.
The doctor came back on the line. She seemed just clueless as to what I wanted. I don't know, lady, how about the results I've been waiting to hear for months?! FINALLY she drudged it out that she has labeled him with autism disorder. She talked (which I had a hard time following because my boys were fighting) and what I got was that from the form my husband filled out and all the other information, she has gathered that Moose has very low functioning social skills, hence the autism rather than PDDNOS or Asperger's (which I hadn't figured on Aspergers because most of those kids have no speech problems).
That was hard to hear because I know he doesn't have the social skills most kids his age have but he does have some. He's so friendly and loveable. He'll chat at anyone (whether they understand or not...), say hi, give hugs. It's just the playing social skills mostly, I think. I still haven't seen the results - hopefully I will know more later this week.
So now we have our diagnosis and it's off to the next step. In a few weeks we'll be moving to Kansas (not far from where we are here in Nebraska but just closer to work and church). Then we'll be placing Moose in a special education preschool (which I am more than nervous about) and I've left a message for the doctor at the autism center with the University of Kansas to call me back so we can know what to do next. Probably more waiting. :D
