[ - ] I'm having a problem with my 6yo dd. Usually she eats a good breakfast -- a big bowl of cereal with milk and bowl of berries. This morning, she said she wanted to start with only the berries. So I gave that to her, she ate it, and then she left the table. I asked her when she was going to come back to the table to eat the rest of her breakfast. She said "X" told me a good trick -- when you are hungry, eat a little and then wait 5 minutes. Chances are you won't be hungry anymore. I was floored! You need to know that my dd is very skinny. She is 44 inches tall and weights less than 40 pounds. You can see this kids ribs! The friend who told her this is a little chubby, but she is six! I know it is a good weight loss trick, but my dd needs to gain weight, not lose. I told her that she needs to eat to have energy for school. She told me she doesn’t want to get fat. I told her she is skinny and didn't need to worry about getting fat -- she needs to worry about being healthy and part of being healthy is eating a lot of good, healthy food. I am going to talk to her teacher tomorrow at drop off to make sure she is eating lunch and snacks at school. She does eat a good dinner, but now I'm concerned that she is hungry for dinner b/c she is starving herself during the day. 29 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I'm aware of that. Was wondering what OP's situation is. When I taught I would never tell a parent to go directly to OT without having an overall evaluation. I think it's really important to have someone with a broader perspective of child development do initial eval. [ Reply | More ]
General Topics 05.22.08, 01:54 PM Flag

But the wait can be extremely long for a dev ped, so the best course of action is to get a CPSE eval going. Also, an OT issue doesn't necessarily translate into a broader disorder, so it may be jumping the gun to go to a dev ped unless the OT eval has shown that there are issues. Hopefully the parent will ask for a full eval in each domain, if she has worries in more than one area. [ Reply | More ]

But the EI starts with an evaluation by a dev. psychologist in the NY board of Ed.

Where are you getting your info? EI doesn't start that way at all. EI starts with individual evals from speech, PT, and OT therapists, as well as from an educator. Many EI kids don't get an eval from a psychologist at all - usually only if an EI dev ped is not available, because they are a lesser choice. Are you sure you don't mean a developmental pediatrician?

That is definitely not what I'm used to! Interesting to hear about different methods.

First, it's grammAr; second, no, you do not need to capitalize specialties, unless it is part of a physician's title, e.g. Dr. Joe Smith, Director of Cardiology, Mt. Sinai. [ Reply | More ]

that's a whole different story. it can be very painful and you want a place that uses the right temperature wax, the right kind of wax, the right technique [ Reply | More ]

A good wax is fast and as pain free as possible. The technician should be careful and efficient. Some ingrowns are inevitable, especially if you are prone to them. I've been a ton of places and while I think some are definitely bad - none stick out as particularly good. I'd just go with a place near you that is in your price range. [ Reply | More ]
