To Qualify, Or Not To Qualify...That is the Question

So, speech therapy.

The evaulation went well!  The boys just barely met the criteria, which is perfect because:

(i) they were far enough behind to qualify for services;

(ii) they were not so far behind that I need to feel guilty for not taking them in sooner to be evaluated.  (Tip of the Week:  Mommy guilt is powerful stuff.  I recommend avoiding it at all costs.)

So hurrah!  We have a meeting next week to discuss "next steps".  Which I assume will be teaching them to recite Shakespearean soliloquies.  Or maybe just getting them to call Scott "Daddy" instead of "Gaggy".  I'm good with either one.

Thanks for all your good thoughts everybody.  I really appreciated all the sweet (and funny) comments.  :-)

We thought Abby might need ST a few months ago, but she did ended up not. They gave her some time, and she caught right up. I hope that the services go well for you guys, and I'm sure they will be caught up in no time. :)

Aw, I'm sure it'll be great for them :)

And for posterity...my mom has some cassette tapes of my AMAZING inability to say Ss, Rs, Ts, Ths, etc. It's really cute :) Plus, it apparently was a way to help me practice because we used to just record myself on the tape doing whatever exercises I had to do that day.

Hope things go well next week! My one daughter speaks exceptionally well where the other daughter still sometimes find it hard to string her words together in the correct order so we all can follow her train of thought! She gets frustrated at times when we "do not get her!" LOL.

Well, it sounds like that went well! YAY for less Mommy guilt :D they will be reciting Shakespeare in no time!

I think a vlog of your children reciting Shakespearean soliloquies is clearly called for.
