Getting Excited...

Today we had our Eligibility/Evaluation Planning Meeting with representatives from, what will soon be, Anna's pre-school.

We met with the Child Study Team Director, the Speech Therapist, the school psychologist, the school social worker, a general education teacher and we got to meet the ladies who will be her pre-school teacher and aide in the classroom.

To sum up our feelings about the meeting....We are Very Excited!!

Everyone we met with was so nice, and a friendly, and oohed and ahhed over Anna.  They were helpful with our questions, and offered us plenty of information.

We also got to visit the classroom and Anna got to play in there for a little bit.  It was oh, so cute, and Anna is going to love it there!

Yes - this is definitely going to be a good experience for Anna.

Next Steps: Evaluations in February/March timeframe needed to be able to develop Anna's IEP.  We will be doing a Speech evaluation, and a general education evaluation.  But, they will also be supplementing their evaluations from information and reports from her current Early Intervention therapists, including OT and PT. (We gave consent for them to be in communication).

Getting Excited about school!!
Anna about to enter her new school for the first time!
