This week has been so crazy I forgot to post about the girls IEP's.
Samantha's was first. Samantha has reached all her goals that were previously set. She is smart as a whip, and is very excited to be with Marcia.
Her new goal is to be reading 36 wpm in Braille. Right now she is about 17 wpm, so that should be do-able by the end of next year.
Marcia's one concern is how clingy Sam has become recently. I advised her I'm aware of the problem, and hope to get some good advice on how to help her soon.
Tori was second. She has done fabulously this year, and both teachers love her. She also has met all the goals that were set and is steadily progressing.
Her new goal is to be reading 72 wpm in Braille. Right now she is between 25 and 32 wpm. Depending on word lists or Genre reading. Again, I think this is do-able.
It is so impressive to watch my girls read the Braille with really no problems. They have to start learning short form words, slowly but surely their speed will be getting closer and closer to the speed that they read print. It's lovely to see them progress!
