Oh happy day. Big Brother has ST with the school SLP today (we all love her). Big Has been working with her since before he turned 3; so she is a solid part of his life. Miss Em today told me that she is going to be able to exit him from Speech soon, he is not going to qualify again this spring when they do all his re-assessments for his IEP renewal.
I am so excited.
Miss Em reports he now has all the age appropriate speech skills. He needs more work on USING all the skills; more practice at endurance (that is speaking clearly at the end of a statement as well as the beginning) and he still needs to learn to use his skills (apply the skills to daily life) but he has the skills, and he has met all the goals to be on the level of his peers!!!
He will finish out the semester with her, and that will give him time to adjust to the idea. He herd us today and quickly asked me “I don’t get to see Miss Em any more”. She is going to spend most of the rest of the semester in the classroom with him working on applying the skills.
He has been doing speech since he was just over 2, so this is really exciting for us all, for him to be ‘age appropriate’.
What is really exciting, is that this means he will be off his IEP before Kindergarten.
