Eval, Eval

I got the formal eval back in the mail for King. His scores were:

Bayley III score: 75. Typical of a 25 month old. He is three and a half. Should be in the 85-115 range.

Communication: 6 (cutoff for autism is 4 and above)
Socialization: 12 (cutoff for autism is 7 or above)
Total: 18 (cutoff for autism is 12 or above)

CARS: 37, Range 15-60, cutoff for autism is 30.

Vineland (should be in 85-115 range)
Communiction: 59
Daily Living Skills: 73
Socialization: 63
Motor Skills: 72
Composite: 64

That's not good, but it's not awful. It means that he needs a lot of help, but it also means that he can be helped.

I had to decode a few things for my husband on the report. Like "global developmental delay" and "concerned about his learning" are ways to say "your kid might be MR." It's not unusual for kids with autism, but it's still depressing.

Meanwhile, he's quietly made the leap into two word sentences, which also means he's probably
made it to a 50 word spoken vocabulary. Yay!

One of the reasons I hesitate to brag about his accomplishments, is that sometimes those accomplishments vanish again. Please, please, please don't let this be one of those times. I'd like a little less regression from here on out, thanks.
