A little good news :)

Izzy had her last speech session!  She has met all of her goals and is considered "age appropriate" :p  Her speech therapist would still work with her on a few things, particularly clarity when speaking in longer sentences, if insurance would continue to cover it but her eval scores are too good to get another session approved.  But that's okay--for now, her speech is so much better than it was and hopefully these months of early intervention will keep her speech development from going down the same path as her brothers (both of whom are still in speech through the school).  I guess that is one bonus of being the youngest of three--when her speech development was identical to her older brothers, I did not have to fight to get her evaluated and helped because the history was already there. 

She was also approved for preschool next year but there are not enough open spots so she's on the waitlist.  Her Early Intervention team has been putting the pressure on the preschool to get her in because of her social skills (which are pretty much zero.  She rarely will interact with the other kids, even though she looks forward to seeing them and talks about them all week) and the fact that her speech is nonexistent when she is with a group so they are hoping she lands a spot.  If she doesn't, there's a playgroup for older kids (3-4yos) so at the very least we will do that.
