Joy-Anna Duggar shares more about Gideon Forsyth’s evaluation.

In her first YouTube video about the test, Joy-Anna Duggar explained, “We scheduled a screening test for Gideon. For a few months now I’ve had a few concerns about his learning. I feel as if he’s just a little bit behind.”

The first evaluation Gideon had was just a shorter one to get an idea of how he was doing. But it sounds like he may need to be evaluated again with a more in-depth test.

After the evaluation, Joy-Anna met with Regional Therapy Services to go over the results. The mom learned that her son has both strengths and weaknesses. He is “on target” with skills like expressive language. However, his receptive language could be worked on at home.

The Regional Therapy Services staff member explained to Joy-Anna, “It might be just good to get the full evaluation and get that plan and see what all the things are that he’s missing and give you an idea of what things you can do at home.”

Part of the video features the employee talking about the evaluation and how RTS works so more parents can seek help if their children need it.

Joy-Anna Duggar may have more to share about her son’s evaluation soon. She hopes the video will help other parents in the same situation and give them an idea of what they can expect from an evaluation.

  1. I wonder why so many people attack the Duggars..I suspect these attacks come from very miserable, unhappy people who actually have very little control over their own lives, so to compensate they puck on others lives.
    I think Joy Anna is simply helping others whose children may be going through similar issues. I say God bless the Duggars I think they are going through some tough trials.

  2. I believe she is genuine in wanting to help others in the same situation. She didn’t have to seek out an evaluation so early but she did and should help him down the road. I am not one to defend all of the Duggers but in this case I do.

  3. I think it helps other parents when a “visable” parent is willing to normalize testing to get their child the help they need.

    I don’t agree with all the Duggars beliefs but I think Joy-Anna is trying to help others with this action. Don’t judge others in a way you wouldn’t want judged.

  4. I hope little gideon gets the help he needs. Fans are blaming the other kids for joshs actions isn’t right or fair. Neither is mentioning him on the stories about the other kids who are doing the right things with their lives. They can’t help who their dad and brother are. People knit picking on these kids for being parents and living their lives is insane. Its not the other kids fault jim bob and josh are disgusting people
