Today was a long awaited day for us. When the boys turned three they graduated out of early intervention and into an IU (intermediate unit) preschool through the school district. Due to their low immunities we chose to keep home services for that through the winter cold and flu season. We applied for them to go to a local preschool geared towards children with autism and we just started that today. They will go once a week for 3 hours. We were approved for two days a week but with their other therapies and their busy schedule we could only fit once a week in right now. But today was the first day in the whole 3 1/2 year old life they went to be with someone other than mommy, or a well known relative or friend. They did fantastic! I was so happy when I went back to pick them up and found them both sitting at a table engaged in silly putty and puzzles.
