Emmett was receiving speech at the Children's Hospital. He finished his 10 week sessions and we decided to find a different speech therapist that supported assistive technology and met Emmett's areas of need.
We are also receiving speech through the UC Davis Mind Institute Research Study called The FX Learn Study. Study consist of a Parent Intervention (PILI) with a Speech Pathologists on a weekly basis. Where the parent is trained to work with child using Speech therapy techniques. Program is very intensive and requires homework videos of parent working with child, as well as weekly video calls with assigned Speech pathologist.
Emmett does a homeschool preschool with mom. We decided to homeschool after having several IEPs with our school district. The program they were offering Emmett limited his abilities and they were refusing to offer a different placement for him. The program did not include inclusion of any type. The school district wanted to segregate him a center for kids with severe disabilities. Where there was clearly no inclusion and they were going to focus on basic life skills. We are offering a more inclusive option at home.
