new coordinator

Today I met our new CDSA coordinator. Our old one moved to a different county. She seemed nice. I felt like she hadn't read Sweets' file though. I had to tell her our whole history. She didn't know that Sweets got other therapies, or that we needed a new developmental therapist. She asked if we thought we even needed to keep getting developmental therapy, and I said that we wanted to keep it, and at least it can't hurt. So now she's on top of getting us a new therapist and I should hear from her Monday about that. She said she wanted to have Sweets re-evaluated though to see if she still needed it. She offered that they could do the eval after her 2nd birthday, because the expectations go up at that point, making it more likely that she would test as delayed. I think that she would test as delayed anyway, but I guess that's a good idea.

I also asked about moving speech therapy to once a week for 45 minutes, instead of twice a week for 30 minues. We have to pay copays each time, and we only get 75 therapies per year on our insurance, so we don't want to use them all up now. But the therapist said that she thinks we should stick to 2x30 minutes because she thinks Sweets needs the full 60 minutes. So, we'll do that. I don't want to be cheap about it, if that's what she needs.
