Speech Therapist Update
It seems as though our Early Intervention Service Coordinator has found a potential speech replacement for Oia. As far as I know, this potential therapist is employed by UVA and she is also a certified EI therapist. However, this therapist is currently undergoing some contract changes and can not officially begin as our new speech therapist until all protocols are met; which will be approximately the middle of May. Our SC will provide me with her contact number once all is in place. I know nothing yet about this woman's approach to speech therapy or preferred techniques but it was communicated to me that she is NOT a proponent for the technique that our previous therapist used. Sounds better already. Remaining optimistic...will keep you posted.
