This afternoon Barrett was evaluated by the speech therapist with the early intervention program. Our coordinator wanted the speech therapist to come and check him out since he drools a lot and a few other things made her think he would benefit for more attention focused specifically on speech. Once again we just want to do everything we can to get him caught up. The speech therapist agreed that he could use the extra attention so her services have been added to our plan. She will come to us twice a month in addition to the special instruction we already receive from our coordinator. We have been encouraged with the progress already made and hope this is just one more tool that will help get him where he needs to be. One thing she suggested is to spend more time around his "peers", that means more play dates. We're not complaining. We love play dates. So that is where we are now.
