"By March 2010, Kaitlyn will be able to write the upper cased letters L-F-E-H-D-P-B-R."*
*taken directly off of her most recent IEP.
No pressure there, huh?
We know that she has several positive strengths in the OT department. According to her latest eval and IEP, she can:
--copy horizontal and vertical lines, circles and crosses.
--consistently uses a tripod grasp with her left hand (like her Mama!) on a writing instrument.
--periodically uses a slant board for writing and shoulder/upper arm strengthening.
They are really upping the ante, pushing her a tad harder since they see her potential and know what she is capable of doing.
And that is just fine with me.
They say that she is willing to work and does not exhibit frustrations, so push away with the HWT* program.
