Thanks for your interest and no, I don't mind answering. It's actually a relatively mild version of CP and it seemed to take a long time to get the diagnosis. Best guess is that she had a stroke in utero which has impacted her cognitively (she's at a 3.5-4 year level in most things) and in the area of gross motor skills. Speech and language are the areas that she has the most trouble with, but she's made a lot of progress recently and is now about 75% intelligible to strangers.

Schoolwise we're doing pretty well. Moved back home to Chicago last year from San Francisco in part because of better special ed. She's in a modified first through third grade class and gets an hour and one-half of speech pull-out each week. She also sees a speech therapist 1-2 times a week outside of school.

Thanks for the offer to help. I'll let you know.

always :) , Kevin
