Re-Evaluation

Logan had his Early Intervention re-evaluation today. Ms. Speech had said she knew he’d qualify for the speech part again (barely) and he does. What’s always amazing to me is watching him do things at these evaluations that I had no idea he was capable of doing! (It always amazes me to hear all of the things I’m SUPPOSED to be doing with him at this age too…ooops!)

Anyway – he scored pretty high for his cognition (27 months), gross motor (29 months), and fine motor (31 months!) skills. His social emotional skills are right on track and his self care and receptive language are both about a month behind.  (Self care only because this test was created in the 70’s and they expect kids to be potty trained by 2. Are ya kidding me??)

Some of the things they asked if he was doing that surprised me:

  • drinking from a cup (non-sippy)
  • walking along a balance beam (or curb)
  • taking a wrapper off something (or a banana peel)

Some of the questions they only ask to see if he’s more advanced than he’s supposed to be. But those 3 … we’ve never really even tried. At least, *I* haven’t tried them with him. And uhm, we still give Burke and Marjorie cups with tops LOL

Some of the things he can do that surprised me:

  • match colors together
  • match shapes together
  • point to objects on command that I wasn’t even aware he knew existed

Some of the things he can do that surprised the evaluators:

  • stack blocks 7 high
  • hold a crayon the “right” way
  • not only draw a circle on command – but trace the one already there
  • put a 3 piece puzzle of a person together – 3 cards with head, body, and legs.

Go Logan 🙂
