Busy busy busy!

Things have been busy around here--lots and lots of driving for therapies and appointments!  But its a good busy because things have been holding pretty steady and we are just in the rhythm of getting to where we need to be :)

Izzy's speech therapy has been going so well since she started the seizure meds!  She has met several of her goals and we may be finished for now in another month or so :)

Early Intervention has been evaluating her to see what her transition out of EI will be like since she turns three in the fall just as the programs are starting back up.  They are thinking she does not need the full-on special education preschool the way B did but they also are not sure how she would do in a completely mainstream classroom by herself.  But they would really like to see her moving on to some sort of program to continue working on speech and emotional/social development.  Perhaps a regular classroom with an aide?  They are checking to see what's available and hopefully we will have a plan in the next few weeks!

B had his transitional IEP meeting so I could meet the staff at his new school.  He's going into a special education classroom with a goal of hopefully being able to attend specials with the mainstream students and then over the next few years build up his time mainstream until he is there most of the time.  We are anticipating a rough transition, though, as he doesn't do terribly well in new and unfamiliar places so it may be a while before they attempt mainstream specials.  Maybe he'll surprise us and be just fine switching schools!

Both B and S have had evaluations with the new neuropsych so now its just time to wait for results and to get a plan in place to move forward :)

And that's about it :p
