Rebecca was evaluated for developmental preschool since she will be aging out of EI.We got the initial report of their evaluation. It doesn't say how many days she qualifies for (kids can get recommended for anywhere from 1 to 5 days a week), or what supportive services (OT, PT, speech) but it does say that she is being recommended to the developmental preschool. Everyone (doctor's/therapists) said she would get in, but it still feels a little better knowing it's official and not having to worry about something crazy happening.
Evalutaions are always a little hard to read. I know logically it doesn't change anything. I mean yesterday I could have told you that my 35 month old had horrible fine motor skills, and there are things her 1 yo cousin can do that she can't, but somehow it still hurts when you see a report that says your daughters fine motor skills are that of a 6-9month old. It really makes you wonder if we have gained any ground with the 2 years of OT we've been going through, but hopefully preschool will work out for her and we will start to see some improvement. I'm excited. Now we just have to wait a couple more weeks so we can actually make her first IEP.
