We just got Ellie's developmental eval in from Case's Project BRIDGE. She has made enormous gains in some areas in the last year. These include two big areas of social-emotional development, relational behavior and self-awareness. Her rate of development increased by 69% in the first area and 67% in the second. This means that she developed in those areas that much faster because of the intervention (there is a statistical way to explain this that I can only do in my head, but probably not well in print). I am thrilled. She also showed noticeable improvement in discrimination behaviors (cognitively, not culturally) and object use. I can't emphasize enough how much this therapy works, and what a difference it has made for a kid like Ellie. I wish everyone had a Dr. Wiggers, a Miss Carolyn and a Miss Sung Hee. Bless you girls.
