Well dd (age 8) had her cognitve test today, we haven't got full feedback yet but had a brief discussion after the appointment, the test took over 2 hours, dd coped really well, the Dr feels she scored average for a lot of stuff, the biggest difference was the verbal comprehension versus processing speed and perceptual responses, verbal been the better. She also noted that dd presented like a 'pseudo adult' but emotionally much younger than her year, overall though she didn't feel that she had significant brain damage and a lot of the weaker areas could be overcome with support at school etc. she also queried autism may be in the mix!?
