A huge sigh of relief.


Today Jillian had another assessment, this time at the London Speech and Language Centre.
I was more than impressed with the one hour assessment she was given, they were able to target three areas we have to focus on, gave us a good directive and assured us she would be well prepared to start school in September.
We chose to put her in a private and group setting, she will be given one and half hours with a speech pathologist then be integrated into a group setting for another hour and a half, total of three hours every Saturday for the next eight weeks. To my shock, there was an opening this Saturday, we can start immediatly, no six month waiting period!!!
To say Jillian is excited is an understatement, they call this program the London and Speech Centre's summer camp, all Jill heard was she is going to camp like her big sister.
To add to the excitement Mom and Dad are over the moon excited because our private coverage will cover a lot of this program, a little added bonus, wink!
So a big huge sigh of relief, my Jilly Bean is going to get the added help and support needed with her speech, I am confident with the centre, we liked the Pathologist and it fits the budget!
Whew......

What wonderful news! We just got our OHIP cards today, so I am going to start looking around for Kerri. She starts Junior Kindergarten in September, but it is painfully obvious to us that she needs some extra help in with her speech and pronounciation. Please keep us up to date with Jill's progress and what the experience is like.
