Luella: The Speech and OT Graduate

We had Luella's IEP meeting on Tuesday and it went SO well!! Luella graduated from Speech and OT!! There's just no need to continue with the therapies since she is doing it all!! Another big highlight is that she will not be visiting her special education teacher as much. She was going 3 times a week for 20 minutes and that has been cut back to one 20 minute session a MONTH! Luella is getting all her work done in the classroom right along side her peers so there just wasn't a need to have that extra time to work on things. We couldn't be more thrilled with all the progress Luella has made. She is doing amazing things and we pray that she can continue on down this path.

The team at school said that if at anytime we feel like she needs some extra help again... they are just right there, willing to step in! We are so fortunate to be in such an amazing school district. I've said it before, but so many parents dread those IEP meetings, feeling they need to fight for the things their child needs, but we have never been in that situation. Everyone cares so deeply about Luella and her success! Blessed!!

It was party day for Luella today!! Celebrating the end of Speech and OT! Awesome Job Luella!!
