Shepherd - 6 Month ECI Review


Today, Shepherd had a 6 month review with his ECI services. The purpose is to look at the goals we set at his initial evaluation and determine where he is at at reaching those goals and if needed set new goals for the next 6 months. 

I am so happy to report that Shepherd has met all of his goals that we originally set, which is a HUGE deal! 

What this looks like for us on a practical, daily level:

-- Shepherd has increased his vocabulary over 50 words!
-- He follows simple one step directions 
-- He engages in adult-led activities, most of the time without frustration
-- He has decreased his balloon fixation
-- His overall frustration levels have decreased as he has learned to communicated his wants and needs using words
-- He has increased his independent play

So today, we set new goals to work towards reaching. His next evaluation will be in December where he will be reevaluated to see if he even still qualifies for ECI services. 

We are so proud of our sweet boy, and thankful to the Lord for tangible and visible growth in Shepherd's development. Thank you for joining us in praying for Shepherd.

AMEN!!
