Ethan's First Day of Preschool - August 14, 2013
First, I have to admit that early in this journey I wasn't sure that we would ever see this day. Ethan's preschool experience isn't anything like most preschoolers, but we are here. We made it!
It was a very emotional morning for Ethan. Ethan cried ALOT! Jeff took a half day to be with us. Ethan has to wear a helmet at school because he falls over frequently due to his seizures. We just got the helmet on Friday so it is going to take a while for him to get used to it.
We met his teacher and the teacher aids for the room and the PT, SLP and Nurse also stopped by to say hello. Ethan will be receiving PT, OT, Speech & Feeding, Hearing, and Vision services at school. Hopefully these will start next week. Once the therapies begin he will have a lot more structure to his morning, which will be good. The teacher also began collecting the data needed to prove that Ethan needs a one-on-one aid. Today there were 4 kids in his class but by the end of September there will be 7 kids. His best buddy, Mason, will be joining him in a few weeks.
Here are a few pictures from today.
