qualified

.........................................................................................................

Today I went to a meeting with the school district to discuss whether or not Olivia will qualify to have speech/language service. Liv has had a speech teacher come to our home for the past 9 months, and with her turning 3, those services end and she gets turned over to the school district.

After going through about 2 hours of tests (on 3 different occasions), Liv was found to still need speech therapy. She has good imitative speech, but her spontaneous speech and articulation are very intelligible.

So, starting next week, Liv will go to the new school in town and see the most awesome speech teacher two times a week.

We are so pleased with the progress that Olivia has made and we look forward to seeing how she grows and develops with her new teacher!!!

Oh Jennisa, if anyone can understand what you're going through, its me. When Devyn was going through this, I had such mixed emotions. On one hand, I was relieved she was getting the help she needed. But on the other, it was hard that she needed it in the first place. And watching her be tested was heart-wrenching. But at least you guys caught it earlier than we did. That can only work to Olivia's advantage. =)

By the way, those eyes of hers are gorgeous!!
