return of the wacky woman

I want her
to get to know Maddie
so she can realize
how WRONG she is!

I got some interesting news this morning.
The presenter who drove me crazy at the hard-of-hearing conference I went to a few weeks ago is coming back to Grab-Your-Lasso.
This nationally reknown audiologist lives in FLORIDA.
And she's coming HERE....

To Grab-Your-Lasso...
To visit Maddie's class.
It seems the preschool invited her in to evaluate what their doing and to find out how they can better help Maddie.
I'm impressed.
And despite the fact that I can't stand the woman I'm not her biggest fan - I'm excited.
Why?
Well, because I want her to meet Maddie, of course.

If you haven't read the post about her visit earlier this month, go back and do it...
Now.
Really. Go. I'll wait...
Okay...
Now do you get it?
I want her to get to know Maddie so she can realize how WRONG she is! :)
Petty, I know.
I also really want to get her input so we can pass it along to the school district next fall. An evaluation coming from a nationally reknown specialist should carry some weight, don't ya think?
This ought to be interesting.
I'll let you know how it goes.

Even through you've had major disappointments from your move, the opposite has been true with the school and Maddie. I am so happy to hear that such good things are falling into place for the help that she needs. It's good to know that the district is doing so well in helping her.

I look forward to the post after the specialist has come and met Maddie.

I'd feel the same way that you do.

Interesting. Hoping she gets to see the "real" Maddie and learns a ton from this experience.

I hope that the meeting goes well and that Maddie is able to get the most out of this possible!!

Wow, that is crazy cool! I am VERY impressed with your school - talk about making the extra effort!

I am also so impressed with this school...wow!

You sound so positive, and I hope it works out well! Let's pray she is open-minded and willing to revise long-held beliefs and prejudices. Pretty interesting... Does she know that you are the mother of the child in question?

And, is the school district PAYING for her to come? Or, is this for her own edification, or what? Either way, it is pretty amazing.

I agree - I can't wait for the update on this story!

Go, Maddie! Do your stuff.
