I am so excited! We have scheduled a consultation appointment in January for Abby to see Susan Norwell, a speech therapist who specializes in treating girls with Rett and other kiddos that are nonverbal with motor impairments. I put a link to her webpage, Focused Learning Solutions, on my sidebar. She has done some amazing work with people with Rett and I can't wait to get some ideas to help Abby communicate. Our appointment with Dr. Percy, in Birmingham, has also been resceduled for January. Dr. Percy and Jane Lane are doing a Natural History Study that involves nearly 1,000 persons with Rett Syndrome. As a part of the study, Abby visits them at UAB twice a year, which is great because we get the opportunity to ask them questions and get their imput. It's going to be a busy month, but I love talking to specialists who really "get" my girl.
