Oh Goody, An Assessment
Tomorrow we return to Thames Valley Children's Centre to do a psychological assessment on Alanna. This is supposed to be our "baseline" assessment. Our future funding depends on how well Alanna does from this point onwards. On the one hand I'm excited to see how much she has improved since November last year. On the other hand, I'm really scared to look at the results... which will be a few weeks in coming.
If Alanna's assessments show improvement, her IBI funding will continue. If not, she will be cut off and transitioned to school.
The two most likely tests we'll see are the Vineland II Adaptive Behaviour Scales, which measure Alanna's ability to function in the real world, and the Bayley Scales of Infant Development, which measure Alanna's skills and IQ.
Alanna, show them what you know!
UPDATE: Alanna really did show them what she knew. The assessment went very well and I think it was a fairly accurate demonstration of her skills. Wooohoo!
