Went to Children's Hospital this morning. It went really well, he's doing good w/ his hearing & his speech is impressive. The doctor couldn't believe on his progress. She said "well, unless something else comes up, we wont need to see him again for another 6 months". She was optimistic.
She asked how he was doing w/ his I.E.P. & I told her about the overstimulation w/ the speech therapist & how I'd try him one more time in that environment but if it happened again I would have to do something & she said "take him out"...the rest of Cooper's therapy (OT & PT) is great, the therapists are VERY accomodating, they do what ever is comfy for Cooper & have no issues w/ me being there & Teighan tagging along. Speech, she is not the same, very in her own element & I don't think that anyone has ever challenged her or told her "no"...it's that sort of town, very quiet people, shy, sort of not aware of their rights as their child's advocate when it comes to E.I. & the school/state. Not trying to sound like a know-it-all either, I just don't think she's had anyone say "this wont work" or "I would prefer this"... what can you do, right? At least Cooper's specialist at Children's supports me & what I do, and she's the best! I love her. She is pregnant (the Otolaryngologist) she is due in December, first child, so she wont be around from Thanksgiving until Feburary, she apologized. I don't know why, she's allowed to have a child (this is her first) & she's so nice, the kids love her. Cooper trusts her too.
