ECI coordinator report

I love how Cate posts her daughter's ECI reports. It really helps me to think about other things to do with Kira. Plus, what a great way to keep up with the records. I wish I had been doing this all along.

Kira saw her Service Coordinator today. Here's the report:

What's New/Progress: Kira is starting to imitate words on request. She is saying many single words along with a sign.

Goals/Outcomes: overall developmental progress

Routines (summary, observation, assessment, plan): Kira said "eat bites" and "read books". She is starting to work on putting her pants on. Putting on her brother's pants today. She said "bye birds" after looking at birds outside.

Recommendations: Continue to encourage 2 word spoken phrases - her language progress is wonderful. See Help at Home sheets for new ideas.

Visited with mom about recent family activities.

I did not have high hopes for today's visit when it started. Kira sat on the couch all sulled up (is that just a Texas expression?). I have never seen that look on her face. Wendy (her coordinator) would try to initiate play by handing Kira things. Kira stacked each thing up away from Wendy, as far as she could get away from her. I swear she was hiding her books and toys so that Wendy wouldn't touch them.

Amazingly she cheered up - the rest of the visit was wonderful! She is just starting to speak around other people. Until now, she would only talk to Derek, Jackson, and I. She would NEVER repeat things when I asked her to, around anybody else. Well, today, she was a little showgirl. I about fell out of my chair when she repeated "bye birds." She's never said those two words together, and she has never repeated something a non-family member said.

She's been trying to put pants on recently. She can get one leg in. Well today, she got a pair of brother's shorts and sat right down and put both legs in. She was on our ottoman, so I stood her up and she reached down and pulled up the front of the shorts. Little toot was showing off!

Wendy gave us a stack of activity sheet type things that discuss the various developmental milestones she'll be tested on when she turns 3. I'm excited to go through them. I'll post anything that looks interesting.


  1. Go Kira and your smarty show off pants!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Kira is amazing, can't wait to read more.

  3. Hey Wendy. I tried to leave a comment the other day but it didn't work. Anyway, hi! Nice to see you.

    I've never heard "all sulled up" before but I'm going to start using it immediately.
