Somehow the preschool Jamie went to passed her on her vision test. I know the eye surgon thinks if she did not have these neurological problems that she would have 20/20 vision but unless they just passed her because she don't need a referral I don't see how she could have passed.
Thank you peimum for my beautiful siggy.

After a year and a half of ABA therapy, Alex is finally appropriate with other people. He used to tell strangers he loved them and try to sit on their lap and try to hug them. The other day we had a computer repair guy here and Alex introduced himself and greeted the guy properly, asked questions appropriately and didn't try to sit on the guys lap.

UGH!!!!! That's how therapy is going... UGH!!!

Last month Carrie's speech therapist was supposed to change to afternoon only so we had to reschedule. Then the following week she just up and quit. They had a hard time filling her position, so we were schedule 2 weeks out to be with someone else... that chick never showed up to work... now she's on some kind of stupid waiting list... a few weeks from now they have a slot open but I'm going to have to pull Carrie out of school to get them there.

Then she hasn't been able to go to PT for 3 weeks cause her friggin PT basically has better things to do... there is no other PT in 100 miles so I dont have a choice, but I'm really getting frustrated.

ABA is great (She's learning LOTS, her primary goal in ABA is to get school preparedness knowledge, like colors and shapes and such) OT is good (they're doing buttons, and Carrie got one this week), and school is going well (she spoke the letters A through K yesterday)

"Disability is not a brave struggle or ‘courage in the face of adversity.’ Disability is an art. It’s an ingenious way to live."

With vision, they only check for diseases of the eye in pre-k screenings...at least that is how the lion's club ones work here.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my GREAT siggy.

Ok it confused me that she passed an eye screening with her eye drifting and her running into stuff all the time. That makes more sense to me now.
Thank you peimum for my beautiful siggy.
