Early On Evaluation

Macy had her evaluation today from 'Early On'.  She did great!  I wasn't sure how she was going to take to strangers coming in the house, but she warmed up to them right away.  Within minutes was sitting on one of the lady's laps playing, then grabbed her hand and brought her to play in her bedroom while I filled out paperwork with the other.

So they did a speech/language eval, and also a full developmental assessment (IDA) for all areas of development.  She cooperated fully and did everything they asked.  

For the speech one; the therapist said her receptive language was awesome!  Measured around a 3.5 to 4 years old's level (Macy just turned 2).  So that's great!  Her expressive language (speaking/talking) is slightly behind.  Which is what we knew, and why we referred her.  She said she would only need to work with her maybe 2 times a month.  I know she would catch up regardless, but it is nice to have someone work with her to give her a little jump-start.

And for all other areas of development she was great and right on target (or ahead)!  Even with her hand surgery and her right thumb not being stable she wasn't behind in fine motor at all!  Which is really good news too!  She has adapted so well.

We are also both feeling a lot better.  Still have a bit of a cough, but other than that back to normal.  Glad tomorrow is Friday as we are planning on bringing Macy to the pumpkin patch this weekend, then next weekend is her 2 year pictures!  Should be fun!  So proud of our little stewbug!  :)

take care, Jenn
