There is a special needs school in the city called Teleton. We have recently been working to get some of our kids tested and placed in classes there. Finally, after quite a few meetings Doris, Monica, Fernando, Sisi, and Maryuri will all be going there. Some have to go weekly while others won't go as often. It is a HUGE blessing to be able to get them intensive training on the areas that they are lacking.
Maryuri tested at a 2 1/2 year olds level. Interestingly enough we've had her here at Casa for 2 1/2 years.
Doris and Monica were both "emergency cases" and Sisi and Fernando both just need to go to get a little extra help.
However, while going through this process the people at Teleton told us we need to start calling Monica ...Reina. It is technically the name on her birth certificate so they want us to go by that. They said if something were to ever happen to her they would look at her file for her info. She wouldn't know to respond to Reina....therefore she is now officially Reina.
