back to school

Last month Max started kindergarten (yes, kindergarten!), and there was a lot of teamwork involved in getting everyone ready and prepared for this lil' man! :)

Below are some photos of the team learning from his Deaf/HOH teacher (Darcy) about the hearing aids, FM system, etc. Fortunately Max knows Darcy from preschool, and they will continue working together twice a week (30 minutes). The plan is for her to teach the team more sign language to better communicate with Max.

Max enjoyed checking out his very own cubby. This is his first "job" of the day when he gets to school. He is take off his jacket and backpack and put them away. Sometimes he is willing...other times he would rather accept the help. :)

And most importantly, Max and I are very happy to have Lisa as his 1:1 assistant this year. She worked with him for a year during preschool, and they do great together! We are truly blessed to have such a loving, patient and inquisitive helper! Thanks Lisa for all that you do. :)
