Tues. April 28th: Today Maria had even more evaluations. At 3:30 the Physical Therapist came to the house. She ranked Maria at approximately the 12-13 month level with her skills. She will be recommending PT 2-3 times per week.
Maria had her Speech Evaluation at 6pm. It was fun to watch someone give Maria a test that I've given to so many other children before. Maria really liked the speech pathologist--I think it's because speech pathologist's are absolutely great:) I think speech with be recommending 2-3 times per week as well.
We'll be having some major decisions as far as Maria's concerned. She can stay home and receive Speech, OT, PT, and a special ed teacher, all at different times for 2-3 days/week each. She can go to Cerebral Palsy Handicapped Children's Association's program every day for 3 hours in the morning or 3 hours in the afternoon, or she can everyday for 5 hours. The therapists seem to be recommending the 5 hour one, but we're still making up our minds.
