The latest re-evaluation Phys Therapy Report
Dh brought this home with him last night. Skid is going to be TEN (10) in 2 weeks. Skid gets re-evaluated every year. Skid was administered the standardized test called the BOTMP-2 which measures upper limb coordination, bilateral coordination, balance, running speed/agility, strength. Here are the changes he's made in each category from 2012 to 2013 (listed by subtest and then the numbers next to are the AGE EQUIVALENT of the points he scored:
upper limb coordination (2012)= 5.10-5.11 (5 yrs 10 mos to 5 yrs 11 mos) (2013)= 6.0-6.2
bilateral coordination (2012) = 5.10-5.11
(2013) = 4.6-4.7
balance (2012) = 4.8-4.9
(2013) = 7.3-7.5
running speed/agility (2012) = 4.4-4.5
(2013) = 4.10-4.11
strength (2012) = 5.4-5.5
(2013) = 5.2-5.3
As you can see, improvements were MINIMAL except for balance which was a big improvement. Some even went DOWN over a year's time.
Ok, so i'm getting to my point. The OCC therapist has to re-evaluate skid with her standardized test tools. She told DH that she doesn't even think she's going to be able to KEEP skid in therapy anymore because she has seen ZERO improvement, in fact, even gotten WORSE over the past year. (Ins. won't keep paying if the therapists can't show data including improvements). P/T was BARELY able to qualify him to continue.
I almost fell out of my chair when DH said to me: "It's my fault he's not improving, I have to work with him at home and I don't"
OMG....REALLY??????? Well, they say admitting is the first step.....I still think he will continue to DO NOTHING and skid will be out of occ therapy, which, trust me, he really needs. His skills in OT are about equal to these PT, 5 year or more delays :O
I have already 'given it to God' of riding my husband's ass, but i'm wondering now since he's admitted he doesnt' parent his kid, maybe I can nudge a little????
What to do???? :?
