Smarty Pants


For the past month Beck has been enjoying visits from an Early Intervention PT who comes to our home and works on Beck's lagging muscle development in his abs, neck and mouth - which was due to a simple lack of stimulation during his orphanage years. He has improved by leaps and bounds and generally loves 'playing' with the therapist and showing her all the wonderful things he can do. Due to policy, they can only help Beck until his 3rd birthday (which is only 1 month away!) so we've already begun the process to transition to the local SAU, which is protocol. This week a rep from the SAU went to Beck's school to observe him and the following day I had a meeting with the entire 'team' to discuss the plan for Beck's continued early intervention. To make a long story short, they spent the meeting 'wow-ing' over how well he has adjusted, how good his English is coming along and how incredibly well he comprehends anything they tell him. They could not believe he's only been home 100 short days. Of course, this is a double-edged sword and they told me he was not eligible for continued services. Yup, the kid is too smart. But I knew that already.

Oh, that's a bummer. But I am sure that he gets plenty of "intervention" from the rest of the family. She is so cute reading to him- looks like a little teacher. I am sure Beck will be completely up to speed when he starts kindergarten. It really is impressive how well he has adjusted.
