Ashlyn's Developmental Evaluation

We had Ashlyns Developmental Evalutaion on March 12th and even though we already knew she qualified for services, we got the official report yesterday.......

The Summary of the Report

Needless to say it was really hard to read that my baby is delayed. When the therapists are sitting in front of you and telling you this and that. It is not quiet as hard. We already knew that she qualified for services, but there is something about it being on paper, that makes it more real and "official". There were pages and pages to this report, explaining her delay and a treatment plan. The good news is that by age 2 she should be almost completely caught up. and in the short term they said that in the next 6 months we should see a huge improvement in her motor and development skills. She will start Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy once a week for the next 6 month. The nice thing is they come to our house and they come together so we don't have to have 2 separate appointments. I am still not sure what these therapy sessions will entail, but i am excited to get the ball moving.
