Speech Progress and EI Update!

The boys will be 3 in two months...wow. That means they age out of early intervention. When a child turns 3, they no longer qualify for (free) services through EI. That basically means it's on to the next round of evaluations and stages. We already began the process called "the transition out of EI" by having a few meetings with our speech language pathologist and a representative from Woburn Public Schools. We discussed the twins, their current situation, and the progress they each have made through their IFSPs. We talked about different options and the amount of services they receive each week (one day each of speech - one at school, and one at home - alternating). We talked about potential dates when the boys could come in and be evaluated for services and the consent forms were mailed to us. That's where we are at right now.

All of this reminded me of going to group classes at EI over the fall and winter months - when I was on maternity leave with Cal. It feels like a lifetime ago, but it was maybe two months ago. Crazy how quickly everything goes. When you're in it, it feels like forever.






The boys have become so much more interactive with Cal. When he was born, they pretty much ignored him. Now that he can sit up and wiggle around, they are ore interested in him. Also, he is now eating pouches and cheerios (like them!) so he's obviously much more interesting. HA!







Two gents - off to work! Hehe





I hope everyone has a great weekend. I will keep you posted on the transition out of EI - and how smoothly the process goes. It should be pretty easy since they do this often! Stay warm out there.

All for now!
