The cognitive tests that I requested for Baby girl and Middle girls from camhs took place a few weeks ago. Sorry its taken me so long to write about them!
We got the results a week later, I will admit to being surprised and some what disappointed by the results.
It seems baby girl isn’t the absolute genius that I’d thought she was, she is ‘only’ (said with a wink and a grin) performing at the upper end of average although it seems she’s a super quick thinker, in fact almost a ‘superior’ thinker, explains why she is able to out smart me so often! I can see I’m going to have to watch out when she hits her teens!
Middle girl scored low, borderline in fact, the damage caused by the neglect in her first few years of life is very apparent. There wasn’t however the answer I was hoping for, I was ‘hoping’ for some significantly low score that would explain why we’re having the same issues with middle girls night time antics over and over again with no sign of her learning from past mistakes. But there wasn’t. It sounds horrible that I was hoping for something so awful from her results, but maybe then I could have understood, I could have empathised and sympathised instead of feeling the frustration and anger that I currently feel.
So I’m still left wondering why……..
