We just finished our IFSP goals for Lily. She is now 2.1 years old and and has 14.3 months of hearing. At our next IFSP we will be thinking about preschool and the process of moving to an IEP. However, this IFSP lays it all out and really provides us with a great guide and benchmarks for the next six months. Thanks to everyone who worked on it.
