Repost for the lunch crowd-had my NT ds evaluated for ST through CPSE for articulation, syntax and stuttering, which just began and is hopefully a phase. The CPSE psych said he may...
need OT and/or play therapy because I told her that he is very mischievous, gets into everything and runs away from me with a mischievous look. He is very related, age appropriate and somewhat advanced, has no issues at schools, loves to play with other kids, not good sharer, & very focused.

frustrated? Or perhaps he is a perfectionist/hard on himself? I mean, personality factors into this stuff too. How old is your son?
OMG I thought you were going to say he was older than that (I didn't catch the CPSE abbreviation - I'm tired). I think while it can't hurt him to get play therapy if you want to, I thin...(more)5-11-2010 1:15pm
