Early Intervention

While the babies were in the Special Care Nursery the physical therapist evaluated them and referred them to Early Intervention because they are preemies and multiples. Early Intervention came out last week to evaluate them to see if they qualify for services. Both babies did qualify.

Emma's scores were:
       fine motor- 1 month
       gross motor- 0 months
       cognition- 1 month
       expressive- 0 months
       receptive- 2 months
       social emotional- 2 months
       self care- 0 months
Emma is eligible for services based on delays in gross motor (lack of head control), expressive language (no cooing), and self care (feeding.) The Developmental Specialist will come every 2 weeks to work with Emma.

We are going to have EI evaluate Grace as well, just to be on the safe side to make sure Grace is where she needs to be developmentally. 

Carter's scores were:
       fine motor- 1 month

       gross motor- 0 months

       cognition- 2 month

       expressive- 2 months

       receptive- 2 months

       social emotional- 2 months

       self care- 0 months
