Lila's old speech therapist, Kelly, started her own business and doesn't take insurance so we are trying a new speech therapist at the therapy center. (Isn't it sad how finances made that decision?)We absolutely love, love, love Kelly. Unfortunately we can't afford to pay out of pocket or even out-of-network so the decision was made for us. Find a new therapist. Yesterday was Lila's first visit with Miss Judy. I was surprised at how quickly Lila warmed up to her. Judy is PROMPT trained, which is a huge reason that we requested her. Usually Lila doesn't like anyone touching her face- especially her mouth- but for some reason she didn't fight Judy at all. Last night when we got home Lila was "prompting" herself- touching her lips and making sounds. Even though her sounds didn't correspond with her prompts, it was hilarious. And of course we're prejudiced but we thought it was pretty impressive as she'd only been to one PROMPT session!
Another day, another small victory. We'll take it.
