See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Today in about an hour, Cameron will be having the last of his Early Intervention appointments. They have been coming into our home since Feb 2011. I already had our final appointments with his OT and Speech therapist. Today is his caseworker. Cameron Turns 3 on the 16th. Things are so bittersweet right now. I REALLY loved his speech therapist, and she did a lot ot help my son. She has a caseload of about 40 kids, but she always made it a point to do small special things outside of her basic therapy schedule for my son. When we had family events, or did our autism walk this year, she would join our family. She cares about her other kiddos, don't get me wrong, but SHE was especially hard to let go of.
The Caseworker has a daughter with Asberger's and is undiagnosed Asbergers herself, so today will be another tough day. At first, we didn't "click", and I felt like she was not really willing to do anything.... I kinda thought to myself that she must hate her job... lol.Now that I know her so well, I know that it is not the case. She has done so very much for my son, and I will be forever grateful. She had the tough job of telling parents deep in denial that there was something different with their son. She helped us go through those first days of diagnosis without judgement. She was creative in finding some funding for certain other therapies, and gave me some needed tools to do my job as a parent of an ASD child. She understood. She also helped us with our next step. public funded special education preschool.
So, today, I might shed a few tears, some sad, some happy. Thanks for letting me share this with you all!
