I have a very sweet and lively 3 year old boy who was diagnosed with Dandy Walker Variant at birth. He has had extensive therapy since birth, however he is still delayed at least a year in his speech and physical development. He is communicating better every day, however he is very hyperactive and spontanious and refuses to listen to any direction. It is very frustrating to me and my husband along with an older and younger sibling. I stay at home and he attends preschool three mornings a week where he is also visited by therapists. That is my only break from constant interaction with my wonderful boy. He is a challenge and is non stop active. It is almost impossible to reason with him, teach him direction, or get anything accomplished that does not involve him. I feel my other children are neglected compared to him. I cannot leave him alone in a room. My husband and I have hoped these personality issues would lessen with age. They have not and only have become worse with age. He even is regressing to our one year old's age level in many ways. I want to know if anyone else has experience with a Dandy Walker child that has these issues. I cannot find this info on the internet.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
