Preparing for neurologist
We spent last week working with the speech therapist and having an mini evaluation done trough EI. I want to have everything together when we go to the neurologist. The upside to all this week is that I actually got to see on paper the improvement Cole has made with EI. So something to think about: When preparing for multiply doctors have a binder together. I made up different tabs that have all of his evaluations, all his EI notes and any information I have like supplements. Having all his information in one spot helps when going to Cole's different appointments. I am hoping out of this evaluation to get either a diagnoses or a unofficial diagnoses. I want to make sure he is receiving the best that he can with his therapy. I also plan to plead Cole's case to his speech therapist through EI to try and get her in more then once a month. I am sure that if Cole has made the milestones that he needs that we will get them in more. As far as his new speech therapist I am out on a verdict with her. I am going to give her a little more time. So I hope that this next week we will have come a full circle and have answers to why Cole is struggling to talk.
