Hello, wondering if anyone out there has had a diagnosis of Apraxia or Dyspraxia with Developmental delays and a few years go by to find out that your child really never had a correct diagnosis and turns out he was smarter in certain areas like music, mathematics, engineering, arts etc. more than the average Joe? How is your child doing now after a few years has passed? I have a son who is turning 4 this May 06, 2010 and the doctors are not sure what his condition is yet, because of his not talking they seem to be perplexed about his case. Here is my description of him. (By the way they don't find him at all Autistic) So, we can rule that out. Or can we???? Here it is in a nutshell:He has no siblings, Is not around other kids, only from time to time at the park, He is affectionate, empathetic, loving, seeks help, seeks approval, very joyful, very engaging, not extremely social, takes a little while to warm up to, shy, loves! MUSIC!, GREAT! memory, great concentration on what ever project he is working on, intrigued by the mechanics of how things work (mechanical or otherwise), loves mind bending puzzles, not taking well to potty training yet, speaks with one syllable words only, likes other children but is cautious of them, very inquisitive! no behavioral problems at all, no ADD or ADHD very calm child.NO head banging, NO repetitive actions like spinning, ONLY when excited he flaps his arms like a little bird, used to slap himself when he was 1 or two years old when he thought he did something wrong, (don't know where he picked that up from, (we don't ever spank!) thank God! has pretty much out grown that now, very organizational, loves to stack things and put things in their corresponding order. does not like things out of place (like shuts open doors, drawers, etc. , becomes a bit stuck on things he does well, like stacking blocks for instance. Creature of habit if you will. Does not take well to eating new things, EXTREMELY picky eater, does not like messy foods like sticky, wet or slimmey things. Motor skills are only delayed because MOM did not work on things with him because she thought he was too young for them like, riding a bike, rollerskating, ice skating, stair climbing the adult way. (Not realizing there was a right and wrong way of walking up a flight of stairs!) I believe that the evaluations that he has had put him at about a 2 year old level's development. I think he's as developed as a person can be without being taught the proper things other than the speech problem we would be much much more developed if he would have gone to daycare, preschool or have been at least exposed to many other things. If you are not exposed to anything how are you supposed to learn anything! My problems is my husband and I have babied him so much that now unfortunately it has become his detriment. So to correct this he is now enrolled in, Tumbling classes, swimming classes, sportster, and enrolled back in his special E.I. preschool (was taken out for a while til this H1N1 scare was over) didn't realize it would have such an impact on him. Also we were to move back to California a few months back but that unfortunately did not pan out, so here we are still and will be here in Rhode Island for the time being until this economy straightens up it ever! OK this was supposed to be in a nutshell! So much for that!!! :) Anyway, this is why reading about the Einstein Syndrome is what I'm leaning towards, granted I'm no doctor but I have read and compared to other children on Youtube with these popular diagnosis and The E. S. is the closest I have found I also just realized that even Einstein had a high functioning form of Autism Spectrum according to the books written on him. I just don't know any more. Let me know your opinion on this matter I always appreciate your input with your experience, I'm new to all of this so I will use all the help I can get. Thank you so VERY much!
