no school.

We got Miles’ big evaluation results today. It didn’t tell us anything we didn’t already know. He strengths are expressive language and his social skills. His weaknesses are in following directions and his gross motor skills…obviously. Over all, he was a little below average. The “typical” child on this test (the Bayley) scores anywhere from 90-109.  Miles’ average was 80. What does this mean for him?

We had planned to send him to a special needs preschool overflow classroom in January. Well, basically- he is not delayed enough for that particular classroom. So, he won’t be going to preschool until Fall. He is too delayed for community preschool (not walking, not potty trained), but not delayed enough for the overflow classroom.  I was kind of excited for him to go off an have his own little preschool adventures, but I’m definitely ok with keeping him home with me a little longer 🙂

**No idea what this photo has to do with this post, just felt like posting it!

That photo makes me hungry!
I can’t stand the whole “not delayed enough” concept. I mean, how delayed do they want these kids! ? Anyways, glad you get to keep him with you longer 🙂

The smiley sandwich was the first thing I saw when the post popped up. And I returned the smile. It’s cute.

Miles is a very impressive little man. He has thrived in an amazing way.
