Keegan's First Day of Pre-K

Today was Keegan's very first day of Pre-K!!

We finally got everything squared away with the school district for Keegan to start receiving in-home instruction with a special education teacher for two hours per week.  She will come Tuesdays and Thursdays, and they will also send a speech pathologist out for 30 minutes per week, in addition to his regular speech sessions at Baylor.  There will be a lot of repetition of programs he is already working on with speech and behavioral therapy, but his teacher will also follow the typical classroom curriculum.  If he is still homebound next year, he will receive four hours of instruction at home for Kindergarten.

Not your typical first-day-of-school pictures, but we will take it!!

As expected, he had a little bit of difficulty transitioning and with attention to task, but overall, he did very well!  He made construction paper blackbirds and worked on his colors.  We are excited to start with a normal schedule next week and see all he can accomplish.  Between 8 hours of ABA, 2 hours of school, 1.5 hours of speech, and half an hour of physical therapy per week, he will have plenty of opportunities to shine!  ;)  Good luck, Bug!  We love you and are so very proud of you.
