I got a call last night from Alex's teacher to let me know that today would be his Picture Day. With Alex only going to school for half the day, she and I are still working out the logistics of his communication book. (Usually she has forty minutes at the end of the school day to write out everyone's notes and put the paperwork in the comm-books, but Alex is long gone by then.)
We also talked about how long we anticipate the therapy program running. My honest answer was at least until December and then money would likely determine how long we could actually keep it going. She said she could see real benefits from the work the therapists are doing with Alex and thus there would be no objection on her end. However, she is going to adjust the goals on his Individual Education Plan (IEP) to reflect the fact that he's only there a half day.
I am pleased with the progress so far and with the therapists beginning to tackle toilet training, I'm eager to see what they'll come up with.
