Mojo and Speech Pathologists


The new mojo challenge is up and the sponsor for this round is Cupcake Scrapshop!! Use the famous line, "I have a dream" and implement a tag somewhere. I made mine into a mini album from Magistical Memories.

The weather has been soooo nice lately! Still chilly, but warm in sunny spots. The weather turned ugly this afternoon though, so it's a good thing we played outside this morning.
Soooo. Anberlin went to preschool today for a developmental assesment. The teacher and the speech pathologist had a lot of the same concerns I did. The next step is for them to present their case in front of a board to get approval to do a formal study to figure out the correct course of action. They said the process is long, but that's fine with me. She had a blast though and did not want it to end. She did an AWESOME painting. I'm totally partial to everything she does, but there's soemthing about it. I'll photo it tomorrow with some natural light.

That's it for now!

Best of luck with Anberlin. They are not kidding when they say the process is long. It took 6 months to get Leilani classified for speech services. We had to get her assessed in 4 different areas because studies show that when there is a speech delay there usually is a slight delay in some other area as well. So we started with the speech assessment, then the psychological, occupational, cognitive, and physical. Turns out they felt Leilani was slightly delayed in occupational (who knew a 3 year old should be able to manipulate scissors?!?!?) But one thing for sure, once she got into the therapy, the results were astoundingly quick to see. I am a huge advocate of early intervention. Have recommended it to 3 other children and their moms are grateful for it.
It is beautiful to finally hear thier thoughts vocalized clearly.

Hopefully it won't take you too long. Emily is seen for speech too, I believe they have 45(???) school days after you make your initial request, to have your meeting or papers done. Gosh It's been so long it's hard to remember. But, good luck girl! Hope you don't feel alone. Hugs!

Hi again! I wish u the best w/ your daughter! My aunt is a speech teacher and I heard it takes awhile but as long as she enjoys it thats what counts. & isn't it crazy how the weather changes from one thing to another? That's been happening a lot over here in New York, tomorrow we're expecting snow when not even 2 days ago people were walking around in t-shirts!
