Lots of exciting things have been happening around here. Last week Andrew received a comprehensive evaluation from Easter Seals the Early Childhood Intervention. It was determined that he would receive 2hours and 15 minutes a week of therapy from them in the home or daycare center. He will get 45minutes of speech therapy and 45 minutes of occupational therapy and 45minutes with a developmental teacher. Isn't that great? I was so pleased with them and his teacher Ms. Jackie has already come out this week to work with him. He had a great time with her and she was very sweet at offering suggestions to work on sensory needs. He will continue to get 2 hours a week of Vital Stim therapy/Speech therapy at HealthSouthRIOSA until I go back to work. Lots of work for the little man! He has an appointment next week with a DAN (Defeat Autism Now) doctor to look at a Cassein and Gluetin free diet. Although it might really help with his development it will not be fun trying to make two different meals at dinner time.
We closed on our house Wednesday and I just picked up the keys an hour ago from the realtor. I found out from our moving company that tommorrow is the big day for delivery. We finally have a house again. !!!!! Super exciting!! Andrew has already enjoyed running around and climbing on the fireplace and falling ofcourse.
Although we are super excited, we are a bit sad not to be living with my brother and sister-in-law. We have had fun and have really enjoyed getting to bond with our adorable nephew. What a blessing family is! I promise to put pictures up soon and will email out our new address.
