i have 3 sons, cody is 4 in april and has GDD(global developmental delay) and tyson is 2 and charlie is 4 months. I want to know if my boys are bright or gifted,like i know only a test down the track will tell.
Cody was born at 41 weeks with the help of forceps and the NICU team had to spend awhole minuteworking on him to get him tobreathe ,he had mengitis and jaundice,and feeding problems resulting in a nasal feeding tube he was in the special care nursery for 2 weeks. despite his dramatic enterance to the world, he reached his developmental milestones such sitting at 5 months crawling at 6 months,rolling at 3 months,walking at 10 months. He has an expressive speech delay and is being tested for fragile x amongst other things.
He learns things so fast he just needs to be shown once and he knows how to do it. heis a perfectionist.he has a intrest in numbers computers and classical music.he loves knowing how stuff works.he is very friendly. he knows some mandarin as well as being fluent in makaton and sign and is learning english (with the help of speech therapy) cody can point out colours shapes numbers without prompts he dislikes sleep.
tyson will be 3 in october he speaks both mandarin and english.he knows some colours but can count in both english and mandarin. he was born full term with forceps was and still is a fussy clingy child very alert and active.he rarely sleeps. he is very friendly. he greets everyne in mandarin lol.i do suspect bothcody and tyson have SPD so we are looking into that.tyson knows his shapes.
tyson did everything round the same time as cody did except he walked at 11 months talked at 10 months.
so what do you guys think?
