Well, we had one more day to recuperate from our trip and unpack which was good. Ella’s schedule was light and Josh decided to take one more vacation day.

Through the state approved Early Intervention Program, we are required to have annual assessments. This is where the the case manager and therapists all come together to discuss goals and strategies for the upcoming months. In addition to the physical and occupational therapists joining this morning, we also had a speech therapist present.

We are going to shoot for a goal of 1x/week for speech therapy. We’re interested to see how Ella responds since it will be new for her. I’m expecting a response between physical therapy which Ella enjoys and occupational therapy which Ella greatly dislikes. She probably won’t love it since it requires her hands and mouth, two areas of heightened sensitivity for her. But, it does not involve eating or drinking which has to be the most challenging of all tasks for Ella.

Other than that, we are just soaking up the last few minutes of the evening as a family. We’re back into our normal routine tomorrow!
