School's out for summer...

It is crazy to think that Corban is going into Kindergarten this fall! He is just such a great kid. He "graduated" from preschool last week. His teacher told me he was a popular kid, that everyone wanted to sit by him and play with him. He hasn't had any aggressive outbursts in almost 2 months.... Thanks to his medication.
We have been so lucky. I am so grateful for all the help we have had the past 2 1/2 years from early intervention programs. Kids on the Move was wonderful and they transitioned us right into Alpine School District. He has had some wonderful teachers, and made so much improvement. When he first started the early intervention he only used about 9 words. When he entered the school district's program at 3 years-old he was still all over the the place and qualified with a "developmental delay." His teacher tested him on general knowledge and skills and he answered correctly about 10-26% of the time. When she gave him the same test recently he was correct about 86-100% of the time! His original teacher said she would have never believed he would make this much progress. He gets to attend regular kindergarten! I am so happy for him! 
This is a gift he made us at school.
