More Early Intervention Woes

Even though we can't get a hearing screen, speech therapy, physical therapy or occupational therapy until we get a social security number and three insurance denials for therapy services, we were told that we could have someone come to our home twice a week from Foundations to work with Ephraim on his developmental and communication skills.

Well today we waited around half the morning for yet another paperwork meeting with Foundations so that Ephraim's sessions could finally begin. The appointment involved signing three pieces of paper, which took all of five minutes. For this I cleaned my house and put on makeup!

After we signed the paperwork, the teacher got out her handy dandy appointment notebook. She gave us a choice of either 1pm or 2pm on Thursdays. Great! When we told her that it wasn't a good time for Ephraim, she said 9am to noon was booked each day because her other clients took naps after lunch! Duh! When does she think Ephraim naps!?! She's the only teacher for four counties, so they can't just assign him to a different teacher. This is crazy!
