Remember back several months ago when we started the process of getting ‘Lil tested? And remember how she wasn’t delayed enough to qualify? It’s been 4 months, so we went ahead and retested.
And she failed! With flying colors!
Ok, so it totally feels wrong that I’m celebrating my child’s failure. But because her language skills are so bad, she actually qualifies for help this time. It’s possibly some of the best news I’ve received all week.
We are also having her hearing tested – just to make sure there isn’t a problem there that would explain her lack of talking. Can I just say, pediatric audiologists are TROOPERS!!! We only got through one ear, and there is actually a possibility of a problem in that ear. However, it was at the end of the test, and it’s also ENTIRELY possible that ‘Lil was just DONE, so they’ll retest that frequency on the next try.
We’re just at the first of this venture, but we officially qualify for services. Next we’ll do a full meeting where we write up the full service plan and all that, and then we can start therapy!
Hooray for the possibility of communicating with my daughter!!!
