We have really big issues with Gavin and his homework again. This time we brought this up at our Tuesday night therapy session with Dr. Pattie. It’s not that Gavin’s being difficult but his ability to even comprehend his homework is of concern.
Today’s Math assignment didn’t get done while at school so he had to finish it at home.
We spoke with Dr. Pattie, along with Gavin tonight. We all went over his homework and asked him questions.
The problem is that we have no idea what’s going on. Does he know what he’s doing and just rushing through his work? Is he no longer able to comprehend this stuff and is totally lost? Perhaps it’s a little bit of both?
When we spoke to his teachers last Friday, they assured us that he is doing just fine in Math class.
How is that possible? Something is very clearly not right.
After talking with Dr. Pattie tonight, the concensus seems to be that Gavin is very likely manipulating everyone but there is very clearly more going on. The manipulation may be a result of him or having any idea what he’s doing in class because he no longer has the capacity to understand this stuff.
Dr. Pattie wants a new battery of intelligence testing done because she suspects his IQ has dropped. There’s no question of that, in my opinion.
She said that she believes that his IQ has dropped to 70 or below.
I have to call the school in the morning and find out what test or tests were given last time because you can’t give the same test, inside of a 12 month period of time.
Dr. Pattie also explained that Gavin’s ability to manipulate is not impacted by his IQ.
This has me really worried because his overall regression has really progressed to a point where it is absolutely interfering with his education.
