There were concerns.
There was knowing without any professional confirmation. We knew, though.
There were doctor’s appointments.
There were assessments.
There was Early Intervention through Kids on the Move.
There was a scheduling for a screening. The earliest possible date was in July.
There were more assessments.
There was an IEP with a panel of special education preschool teachers.
There was special preschool.
There is progress.
There was a cancellation from someone else, which meant an opening for an earlier screening at the University of Utah.
There was a psychiatrist. And play. And observation.
There is a diagnosis: Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Now we are here.
And now there’s more.
Unknown territory for us, but we’re damn good parents that will give the absolute best to our daughter that we can.
Thank you all for your continued love and support and patience for our little girl.
There you are.
