Early Childhood Special Education Summer Program

So today we got the information about the Early Childhood Special Education summer program that Sean qualified for. It is for four weeks over the summer and for 3 hours a day four days a week.

It is so crazy when we first found out he qualified for the services we didn't think he would need to go to the summer program but now that he has started and is going every day we have noticed a lot of great changes in his social and coping skills.

He still needs more help in those areas but with us going to the summer program he will continue to get those therapies as well as the OT and SPEECH which is great.

We will continue to get the OT and OT aquatic therapy. Well actually we are switching to PT aquatic therapy so we can get PT in there is over a year and half wait to get an after school, evening, weekend PT session.

So things are going well and we will be sending Sean to the summer program.

I am excited for these things when Sammy turns three. I think it will be so good for him to go and be with other kids.....that aren't his siblings.

I am so glad that he qualified for this. Thanks for the update!

That sounds like a great program. Max is in school pretty much year-round, so we don't have need for a summer program. Sometimes, it bums me out, I feel like taking him out of school and sending him to camp! But it's just me, he loves school.
