Here is an excerpt from Xander's speech therapy today- his last one with early intervention! He has officially graduated from the RISE program and into the school system. The plan is for him to continue speech therapy in preschool in the fall. He doesn't qualify for summer school and although he could start preschool next week after his 3rd birthday we decided that would be too disruptive and plan on starting him in the fall with the new school year. Luckily though because James is now receiving speech therapy Xander will get bonus therapy through James! I love his little accent... a weird combo of Frank's southern drawl and the more New England speech we hear around here. He has good word acquisition these days so mainly we continue to work on speech intelligibility. Even I have a hard time understanding his toddler speak sometimes.
