Four More Classmates

In addition to the 7 or 8 kids Sarah had already picked out for us to work with (not all of whom you've met yet), she is considering 4 of the new children for our group, as well.

Since they don't have profiles yet, I'll introduce all four of them to you here.

In this photo are 3 of the girls.  On the far left is Meghan, next to her in the black & white is R. and on the far right is P.  This is the only photo I have of P and I don't know anything about her.

This is a close-up of R. and I don't know anything about her, either, but isn't she a cutie?

The initials, BTW, are because Sarah doesn't use any of the children's real names on the blog.  They all have pseudonyms.  These girls don't have blog names yet.

Here is Meghan (on the left).

FYI, Shalene is on the right.  Remember her?  She was the older girl who was so undervalued by everyone who met her and looked so miserable in her photos.  Look at her now!!!

Anyway, I think Meghan is going to be a hoot!  She looks so joyful!  Here is what Sarah said about her:

Meghan is a walker and has quite a bit of communicative and cognitive potential and is so friendly. She has choreiform movements and her tongue extends fully every few seconds.

Choreiform movements are rapid, jerky, involuntary movements of the body.

Meghan is also non-verbal, but Sarah said she is very easy-going and should be happy to participate in whatever we are doing.

And here is the last little peanut, Judah.  Do you not just want to eat him UP?

Judah is five and quite bright.  He has fluent speech.  And that's all I know about HIM!

Still for you to meet:  Hannah, Paula and Rachel.
