Morgan had her EI eval yesterday, her prior outpatient PT was kind of a joke. No model to it, especially no hospital based approach which is kind of the structure I like. The PT pushed her so hard that she was puking at the end of almost every appointment, and it just didn't seem like a conductive environment for her to learn in. So after 3 months I pulled her out and set up an appointment for EI eval.
Her language skills were mostly on par, she has some food aversion, and has actually started to lose weight, so they weren't sure what to put down for sensory just yet, because they wanted to wait until after her endoscopy. She also has no problem being naked but baths she still screams, the whole time.
Anyways for the majority of her motor skills she was at a 4 month level. Even at her adjusted age that's still a 50% delay, or 60% I guess at actual age. I don't think our neuro understands just how freaked out I am that something COULD be wrong in her little brain. They keep pushing her MRI back and i'm the verge of wanting a 2nd opinion but at the same time, I know that will take forever so I want to see what pedi says at 9 month check up.
She won't use her arms for virtually anything, her tone is low & they said it's different in her right vs left. She won't hold her arms up, hold her bottle, or push up on them, obviously something is wrong there.
So, my question is, if you're older LO had a history of CP/other issues galore, would you just 'relax' and try to go with the every baby develops at a different pace, or would you push the neuro to follow your gut instinct?
