I get why they are done. I have personally seen children go from the severe end of the spectrum to needing little to no supports in just 3 years. But for me it’s just a slap in the face. It’s just a reminder of how significant her needs are. It’s just points out that though significant progress has been made, she is still considered significantly delayed.
So here it is , Blue Cross, your confirmation that you need every 3 years.
Yes, Courtney still has autism. Yes, she still is significantly delayed.
Yes, she is still considered severe.
But this scale forgets to ask a few things. Let me answer those for you too.
Yes, Courtney is healthy.
Yes, she has made tremendous progress.
And most importantly, yes, she is unconditionally loved and the most amazing little girl and I couldn’t be prouder to say I’m her mom.
