My 11-year old son was diagnosed with CAPD when he was 5/6 years old. Following his Kindergarten teacher's suggestion, I had him tested/evaluated by a child psychologist. He was not diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, but there was something that she saw from some of his tests, so she recommended he start speech and therapy sessions to help pin-point it. We signed him up and after being evaluated and following several sessions, they diagnosed him with CAPD. He was in therapy for about a year; however, when the center re-evaluated him, they said he did not have CAPD, but they could not pin-point what he did have. We stopped the sessions b/c he seemed to be doing well in school academically and socially, but I always noticed he had a hard time concentrating in that he was easily distracted. He just started middle school and is being challenged that much more academically. He's been having a difficult time with some subjects in staying focused, not comprehending simple sentences, etc. And he gets very frustrated at times. I emailed one of his teacher's becasue he had recieved two failing grades on tests (his HW and CW are all good grades, but he's testing poorly) and she replied that "he is very well behaved, but at times daydreams and asks questions that have nothing to do with the topic she's covering in class." I turned to the Web and did some reading on CAPD again and when I read through all the signs, he matches each one! I feel like a terrible parent having stopped the sesions four years ago, but he seemed fine and the center could not tell me what was wrong, if anything. I recognize that there is something there, but I'm unsure how to handle it and I really need some guidance. Should I have my son re-evaluated by a child psychologist, or have him re-tested by an audiologist? What can I do to help my son?
I greatly appreciate any feedback you can provide.
