Success story!

  1. I'm so excited, I wanted to share! I've been unable to screen one of my preschoolers because she's terrified of medical people, screaming and crying every time we tried to bring her to the clinic. The counselor suggested I go to her classroom and spend some time playing with her to see if she'll warm up to me. Worked like a charm! I spent 45 minutes yesterday rotating through the learning stations in class with her and by the end she was proudly showing me her work and giving me little smiles. Today I set up the screenings as a "station" in her class and she breezed through them! Woohoo!

    Just to clarify, congrats on the kid, not the milkshake
