He doesn't talk (we've heard a few 'no''s) but he does use some sign language and shakes his head 'no'. He is very good at getting his point across and (as opposed to 6 months ago) we have hardly any trouble understanding him now, and he is much much better at understanding us.
He doesn't appear to have any major defensiveness issues as far as everyday things, though he won't mess with play-doh, felt, beans, things like that. He's jumped leaps and bounds in learning how to use toys (now he gets it after just a few examples, rather than weeks). He is very active, runs into everything and lots of bumps and bruises. He is easily overwhelmed in large noisy situations, but had a birthday party at CEC and wasn't phased at all. His favorite toy was the Skee ball with lights, noises and tons of screaming kids....go figure.
Anyhow, I just wanted to introduce myself and my son. Besides all his therapy, home daycare and tutoring I am also planning my wedding in November to his father, Jason. Lots going on around here!!
