Progress

Tuesday, was my son’sĀ first speech therapy session. I was nervous because I didn’t know what to expect. But he responded well to his speech therapist and she got him to say two new words “More” and “Mine”. I wanted to shout out at the mountain tops. I was pleasantly surprised that he opened up on his first visit.

The next session is tomorrow and I can’t wait to see what happens in 45 minutes.

Wednesday, he was introduced to the PECS program. She will be working with him to get him to be able to communicate with us, without getting frustration he has. Especially, since Tuesday night he has a full-blown meltdown. He cried almost all night. I calmed him down in between but it was a long night that ended at 12 midnight.

I will update as I go on this journey…
