Today started out ROUGH to begin with. Emmett was up at 6am this morning. He accidentally kicked Lizze in the stomach (which is still very painful) which set the tone for her today. We got the kids dressed and off to school. We stopped and filled up the tank and we were on our way to Cleveland, more specifically Case Western Reserve University. It takes about 1.5 hours to get there (sometimes less) depending on traffic. So that makes for about a 3 hour round trip at roughly 130 miles. Traffic is usually pretty rough.
This morning we were there to complete Emmett’s testing. The first test done today was the “Bayley“. The test focused on cognitive function and communication skills both receptive and expressive. The second test was “Reynell” and once again tested communication skills both receptive and expressive. There was also “play time”. They recorded him playing with toys for 5 minutes and then recorded Emmett and I playing with the toys together for 5 minutes. Emmett did really well as far as behavior goes. I don’t know how he did on the testing as there was a lot he did well and a lot he struggled with. Hopefully well get the information back and see where exactly he is. The tests took about 1 hour and we were on our way. While it was worth the trip, I wish we were closer because Emmett doesn’t do well on trips like that and honestly it get’s pretty expensive. The testing is complete for now. We will do this all over again in 6 months and see where he is then. Now we just drive to Loraine every other Friday for “group”.
