Every six months Antalya has her Early Intervention evaluation. This involves a visit with one of her therapists who proceeds to "test" her skills in several areas (gross motor, fine motor, cognitive, social, language, self-help, etc). With her recent birthday it was time once again to test her skills in order to help us set new goals.
Regardless of what the actual results say, today was a SUCCESS! I was amazed at all Antalya has learned in the last six months. She was even able to demonstrate several tasks that we haven't been working on - such as sorting spoons and blocks into different containers, and putting a penny into a piggy bank at several different angles. These may seem like simple, insignificant things to many of you, but once you have a child that is developmentally delayed you learn to celebrate every success and not take any new skill for granted. Way to go Antalya!
