    Assessment
    Tuesday, September 19, 2006
    Yesterday was Corey's developmental assessment at the local Children's Centre. We got there early and were waiting ages. Then they called him to get weighed which he hates and as soon as he saw the little room he started to squeel, so she decided to leave it a while and have his appointment first.
    We were seem by a really nice male doctor who was very thorough. He aske all about Corey's history and observed him playing. He wanted to know if i had any concerns but they are mainly the speech and feeding really as well as his clumsiness. He agreed that the clumsiness could be down to the flexibility in his ankles. He's rectifying this by using his toes alot to balance which isn't right. The main consultant came in towards the end of the appt and looking at him she agreed that he should be referred to Physio to let them have a look at him. I'm pleased about this as at least any problems will be caught early. The doctor listened to his chest and checked his reflexes which were fine. He was impressed with the fact Corey would happily play on his own and also that he was able to take the favourite toys that Corey was playing with away and Corey showed no concern. He asked how he did it nursery whichis great but i explained he's more of an observer than a participater. Anyway the words the doctor used were 'very impressed' which was just awesome. He says he has no real concerns about his development and sees no need to see him any earlier than in 6 months. Dr Gentle(isn't that a nice name!) said that she was always on the end of the phone if i needed to know anything which is reassuring!
    So i came away a very happy Mummy and very proud of what my little man has achieved!
