My feelings are all over the shot. But I know it's the right decision.
On a much happier note, today my almost 7yr old was sized up for a developmental trike, designed to strengthen upper body strength and hand grip and a bunch of other things. So we have put it on order with his FACSHIA before it officially runs out next week. Then it's up in the air until the NDIS comes in next year.
Those bikes are awesome we bought one for my brother who has downs he doesn't really like it he goes through fazes but it's good to know a company does it
White Mage I can see how your feelings are a bit all over the place about the SDS option for next year. How are you feeling now it's had some time to sink in?
Monnie, how are things going with you
Re: cognitive testing. DD had an IQ test as a part of her diagnostic assessment early last year, but will be having another cognitive assessment later this year to give us a more detailed understanding of her level of functioning. I am hoping she will be co-operative!
The plan will always be to transition him into a mainstream class (he'll be reviewed regularly to assess whether he still needs to be there), but I do feel it's the best place for him to start.
How's everything going with your DD?
All is okay with DD, thanks for asking. This term she's been a bit out of sorts. I think because her teacher has been away quite a lot and they also have lots of 'out of routine' activities going on at school (e.g. school production). She copes okay at school but we certainly see a difference at home. She's also missed almost 2 weeks this term due to illnesses. I can't wait for winter to be over!
Pregnant for the first-time?
