Today was a mixed day. We started the day with our last meeting with Miss Kat's SLT. She started going over Miss Kat's testing. I got really upset. On the PLS-IV, she got 2 years 7 months expressive language level, and 2 years 11 months receptive language. I just got really overhelmed. I felt like she was making so much progress and when I saw those numbers I got really depressed and overwhelmed. She is 6 and she barely made it to 2 1/2. What are we supposed to do??
So, the teachers told me, since I don't like to consider her hearing age only 7 months (she had hearing aids for 4 years 7 months before her activation, does that time count for nothing??), what if we split the difference. We take half her hearing aid time, plus the CI. So, that would be 31 months or 2 years 5 months......hmmmm, maybe she is doing ok
