In the clip, the cameras followed the mother-daughter duo to one of the therapy sessions. Sienna’s new therapist had her complete a series of tests while Gina watched from the sidelines. “This is going to give us a better understanding of her sensory processing,” the therapist explained. In another scene, the therapist told a worried Gina, “I’m going to recommend therapy for her.”

This isn’t the first time the mom of three has opened up about Sienna’s learning and developmental difficulties. Earlier this year, during a meeting, her daughter’s pre-kindergarten teacher first raised the alarm. “I’m getting a little nervous,” the Bravo star said at the time. “She’s having fine motor issues.”

Gina continued, “I had a teacher conference with her Pre-K teacher. And her Pre-K teacher was like, ‘She’s a little bit behind on her developmental skills. She doesn’t know how to write her name.’ And I see all the other little girls in the class and they can fully write.”
