help wanted

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

We had the fifth and sixth parts of Maddie's developmental screenings this morning.

Good grief! Are they thorough or what?!
We've done a basic developmental screening...
A speech screening...
A language screening...
A fine motor screening..
A gross motor screening...
A psychological screening...
What more is there?!
Don't get me wrong. I'm glad the cross their T's and dot their I's, but I'm tired already and want the answers. Thankfully, it looks like we're not too far away from getting them.
I talked with the developmental specialist this morning (while waiting for Maddie to finish up on the gross motor stuff). She said all of the reports are written except for these final two and she expects to have an IEP meeting next Thursday afternoon.
They'll send us a copy of their final report sometime this week for Shad and I to go over. Then, we can present our questions and any concerns at the meeting next week. If we come to an agreement, services could start as early as the next Monday.
It looks like we finally may be getting Maddie some help.

It's been an ordeal but you will have answers and soon Maddie will be starting with the experts. You'll be seeing her advance and how wonderful that will be.

Boy they really do dot the i's and cross the t's, but that is good news! Hoping you hear good results.

They are very thorough! But that's good, I kind of wish we'd done similar testing with Zeeb, if only to have a baseline to go from. (at least in regards to his language). Hope they come up with an IEP that everyone is happy with!

I'm glad you guys will get some answers soon, and hopefully have a plan in place that will help Maddie.
