EIP Meeting

Hayden has progressed great this school. Mrs Kim has done great with him.  He will be in Mrs. Tracey Morrison class next year at JPES we will start 5 days at week regular school hrs and if its tooo much on him he will go back to 3 days a week.

He qualifed for ESY (extended school year) So he will go T W Th 6/14/11-7/19/11 with a week break for 4th of July week.

It is still up in the air if he will start in August or September the Special Education Leader thinks they will start when school starts but that is up to the higher ups so we will find out when they find out

Now the testing:
Coweta County Develpmental Screener for 3 yrs old= he passed all  secions except Communication
Preschool Languare Scale ~
Auditory Comprehension Subtest  age equivalent of 2 years 2 months
Expressive Communication Subtest age equivalent of  1 year 1l months
total Language Standard Score equaivalent of 2 yrs

Preschool Evaluation Scale  he passed all except small muscle 5 and self help 5 needed 7-13 for average

There is a lot more testing and ranking but that gives u the idea of where he is at and what his weakness are that we will be working on.

Tears of Joy

I started this and really havent been good at keeping up with it.. Hayden is doing so awesome.. I had tears in my eyes this morning as he was talking to me as we were getting ready and saying 4-5 word sentences he said 20 words in 15 minutes.. This time 6 months ago we were lucky to get 20 words in a 24 hour period. It just amazes me.. One of his phrases he has picked up on that I really dont care for is "oh my god" but I just sit and think and remember the days I was wishing on this day to come. I kept telling Hubby 6 month-1yr ago that we would eventually be wishing that he wasnt talking.. It hasnt gotten to that point yet but boy is getting close. We still have trouble understanding him at times. but boy can we understand him alot more.. prob about 75% now when it use to be 25% and below. Im so proud of him... School has done wonders for him. I cant take all the credit his teacher is wonderful.. I was scared at first and didnt want to put my 3 yr old in a big boy school.. but I am sooo glad I did now ... His next advenutre will be prek in the fall. I will find out more towards the end of the year when we have our end of the year eip... I am so proud of my baby boy.. I also noticed last week that he is now able to position his tongue out. He can touch his top and bottom lip. which he has not been able to do from birth.

Goals for Next 6 months
* potty training
*continute to work on speech
*work on fine motor skills
