Sorry not much posting here of late, but bear with me and hopefully things shall return to normal once school starts back next Tuesday.
Work has been busy, as well as the run around getting school supplies, new uniforms etc. Lane starts high school this year & is very nervous about it. So nervous in fact that he has given himself a dose of diarrhoea.
Lane had a specialist appointment yesterday and they checked his eyes again. He has very good eyesight that we knew, but we also knew that the muscles around his eyes weren't doing their job properly. This makes it really hard for him to focus on something and then refocus on another thing. It means to copy off the board is horrendous for him or if he lifts his head from the book he is reading it takes awhile to re find his place. This is a common problem in Autistic/Aspergers children as poor muscle tone is common.
Anyway we have done extensive therapy for this in the past but alas it has not worked. So now the next step is glasses but with special lenses that will help him with this but not affect his sight which is good. (If that makes sense)
Lane has only to wear these while reading, doing models or anything intricate and probably only for 2-3yrs. He is not very happy so hopefully he will see results early on and be encouraged by that. I think it's a very hard time for a child to have to wear glasses, just about to start high school & becoming a teen.
I have been dropping in and reading a few blogs even if I have not commented much of late.
Hope you all have a lovely day today
