Today was Josie's one year re-evaluation with First Steps, as well as her first visit with her new speech therapist. She loved the new ST; talked up a storm and did everything she was asked to do. The re-eval went smoothly as well, though Josie said a TON of things I've never heard her say before. She was given a mirror, and the ST evaluating her said "What is that, Josie?" and Josie replied, "Picture me." My jaw dropped. Then they showed her a picture of a vacuum cleaner and asked what it was. She said "Macoom." Turkey! She also actually said her name! It used to come out as "yoshi" and today it was definitely Josie. She did so well, in fact, that she may not qualify for OT services anymore! What a testament to the ability of our wonderful OT! :) WTG Josie Nae!!!
