Isaiah's transition meeting: the conclusion

Remember me posting about his initial "transition from Early Intervention to school-provided services" meeting way back in February? Well, in April we met again to discuss a plan. (Yes, I know that was a month ago, I just kept forgetting to blog about it *blush*).

On his official speech/language evaluation (taken at 32 months), for receptive communication, Isaiah performed solidly to the 32 month level, and for expressive communication, he's at the 18 month level.

So, he does qualify for home-based speech therapy, currently set at once a week. It will probably start some time in September, which is kinda stinky. He turns 3 the first week of July, so that's a couple months without any ST.

If I get the chance, I'll post more details about his speech progress and where he's at right now. I feel like we're at a plateau, and it'll be interesting to see if perhaps you guys have any suggestions.

Has he had an evaluation with a neurologist and speech eval? If not than you should get them to help you get more services for him. In my experience, our school will not do anything for him unless he has an official eval that says he needs it.

Awesome, RainbowMummy. I remember that, but I'll definitely go back over it. I <3 your blog.

Beth- He currently sees a speech therapist through Early Intervention (and has since 17m), so quite a few speech evals over that time. He hasn't been evaluated by a neurologist, which is why I'm sorta contemplating if seeing a pediatric developmental specialist would be a wise choice (our regular pedi. doesn't have much to say about Isaiah's issues, and offered us a referral to one last year, but at the time, thought it was over-reacting).

Anyhoo, thanks for letting me ramble some more.
