Why the NeuroPsych testing is so important

I know is there isn’t anything that I can do but I’m really upset that Gavin’s testing was canceled. The last time he had NeuroPsych testing was on 7/01/2014. I know that because I pulled his report. I thought it was longer than that but I guess not. There are a few reasons that this …

This is one of those posts where I’m brutally honest about something that’s going on. Those with experience will be able to relate, and those without have an opportunity to gain some insight into something they might not otherwise have any experience with.

It’s too painful to talk about

As time goes by, I’m becoming more and more concerned about Gavin. There isn’t just one thing in particular that’s got my stomach in knots but rather a conglomeration of symptoms that aren’t sitting good with me. He’s losing his already limited problem solving skills. I just watched him struggle to figure out how to …
