Gabe had a dentist appointment 2 weeks ago as well. He has all his teeth. They are crowded, so he may have oral surgery once permanent ones come in, but for now, keep brushing and doing our thing.
Gabe had an ENT appointment 3 weeks ago. One of his ear tubes was missing and the other was completely occluded. He also failed the hearing test for low tones because of the fluid in his ears. I'm waiting for surgery dept to call us to schedule another PE tube placement. They said once the new tubes are in, he should hear no problem.
We had Gabe's IEP meeting this past week for preschool next year. We set some really good goals around walking up stairs, beginning writing letters, following 2 step commands, and interacting more with fellow students. Gabe is very friendly, but also shy with other children. I think he's afraid he'll get plowed over. He is doing more and more gross motor activities. He is finally standing by himself. He is cautious about this though and does not like to stand up if a crowd is watching for fear of embarassment if he falls down.
Gabe has always done well with speech, but we are also finding that the things he is saying are less scripted. He is developing his own language which is fun to see.
