It's amazing that we are at this point because it seemed like yesterday we had the first meeting to begin the whole process! I brag relentlessly about our experience with Early Intervention so far and we couldn't be any luckier to have been provided with 2 of the best!
Some of the things we will be working on with Colin:
- Pre-language skills (imitation, sounds, etc.)
- Reaching and grasping
- Movement to attain a toy
- Fine motor skills
There are many more specific things, but these are the ones that stand out to me right now. Both therapists also made recommendations to move towards therapy once a week, which makes me very happy because I want to do as much as we can right now. I feel that if Colin acquires a skill in a week's period of time, we can focus on that and move forward with quicker turnaround.
As always, it's hard to hear the things he needs to work on, but unlike the ITAP program at Jersey Shore, all of the positives are emphasized as well. Here's to another 6 months of working hard!
