The therapy center where we go for private pay therapy is wanting to get a summer preschool started this summer for a few of their patients. It will be run like a normal preschool but each child with have 1 therapist assigned to them so it will be 1 on 1. They will do the same activities as in a reg. preschool but for part of the time they will have their own speecher with them and hae speech therapy with the activity, then they will have an ot for OT, and so on....

His speecher said when they mentioned the idea she instantly thought of my brayden! And asked if we'd be interested! I screamed YES!

They are waiting now to see if they can work out the details of funding it---they are a non prof. organization and a lot of their fees are paid through a local charity, and they have a stepped fee scale. And they also need to see if they'd have enough kids to take part in it. I'm praying they get it started! That would be GREAT for my lil guy!

Thanks to Maitri for my wonderful siggy!

Awesome! We have a similar program here, Gus went last summer, it;s run by volunteer STs and OTs and preschool teachers, and they even had a bus pick him up! It really helped him to to have that daily therapy and "school" throughout the summer, as he was so used to it and benefitting so much from it during the school year. I really hope your program is able to get off the ground, crossing my fingers for you and Brayden!
