Back to the Old Plan for Ave...

Had Ave up at the Child Development Centre for her speech/physio/OT appointment today. After talking with her speech therapist about her upcoming dental surgery and her lack of improvement in putting together sentences since her last appointment in March, she is going to reassess Ave to get her preschool funding for September. That means that Ave will be headed to school for a few hours each afternoon, five days a week, with a class that will include all the speech, physio and OT aid that she may require.

In addition, we need to work on stretching her hamstring on her right side to get it looser. If we fail to do that, and her tendon stays tight for an extended period of time, she would have to start getting her leg casted to modify the way she uses her legs. Hmm...curious to see if she lets us do it!

Lastly, I think I will try to find her a more supportive chair (like the one in the picture) for when she works on fine motor skills or reading. She tenses up so much without support and as such, she is not giving 100 percent attention to the task at hand.

Oh my! There's always so much to think about for that little girl!

You are going to school Avery! That is so so cool. I hope you make many friends, and mom will post all the wonderful things that happen to you. I just found out today my great neice is having a girl and her name is Ava and of course my grand daughter is Avanelle and with you, I will have three little beauties all with names very close. I hope someday you all meet and dance in the raindrops!

Hi Avery! Great news about pre-school! Our Julian improved about 300% after he started pre-school. He's now getting ready to start kindergarten in the fall - with all the regular kids! I just know that you are going to love learning and playing with all the other children! ~chris
