New Beginnings

Yesterday Christian had his first appointment since we transitioned out of the Infants and Toddlers program with his new teacher through our county, Mrs. K. They completely hit it off, and he was his usual silly, sweet and VERY chatty self. He gave Mrs. K. a very good picture of who he is, and he was totally comfortable with her. I knew he would be, but I couldn't help breathe a sigh of relief once she left. I have been so full of anxiety with this whole transition. As most Moms of children with Cochlear Implants will attest, the relationship your child has with their teacher/therapist is essential to the success of the child. We have been BEYOND lucky to have absolutely wonderful teachers and programs at our fingertips to help Christian. I'm really looking forward to working with Mrs. K and having her on our team.

Sounds like they had a very successful meeting! We transition in the spring and I'm rather nervous as well- luckily we get to keep our speech therapist, who has been amazing with Nolan. We won't lose her until we either start universal pre-kindergarten or kindergarten (if UPK gets axed with the state budget cuts).
