A most monumental occassion: we survived the first thirty-four page IEP. He has five goals, some are social-emotional and some are academic. All are realistic and exactly what I would want to see him achieve this year. One of them has to do with being able to transition better, another has to do with handling his emotions, and another has to do with increasing from one-word utterances to three-word sentences. The fourth goal has to do with basic math skills like sorting by color and the last one addresses fine motor skills. I feel very blessed to have such a dedicated, down-to-earth, trustworthy team working with us. They genuinely want the best for him and take my role seriously, too. Another way the Lord provides for us.
From now on, I am scheduling all of my WIC appointments for 5:00pm. Oh my goodness! Everyone was in such a big hurry to go home that the entire visit took maybe 30 minutes. Compared to the usual hour, this was a majorly pleasant surprise.
Tomorrow is the big day at the behavior clinic. Then comes the birthday party. (CAKE!) THen the first full day in his new room. Then comes the doctor's appointment. And then birthday stress settles into regular life again. I'm excited, though, because he's already doing such a nice job in his new room. There will, of course, be challenges once the transition is final. But overall, I am feeling very hopeful.
My next project? Getting him a small trampoline with a bar on the end to keep at home. Doesn't that sound crazy and fun?
