We are working pretty intently on speech right now. He has had some success with some of his sounds this summer. Currently we are working on the beginning "Y" sounds in words. For example, instead of saying "yesterday", he will say "westerday".

Not really yet. Still basking in the fact that she can write mostly straight and mostly on the lines and the most impressive of all is her ability to make the letters correctly 95% of the time.

It was! in January she couldn't make the letters correctly at all and I had to translate for people to read the words she wrote. Then in June she was doing this! This program is focusing on life skills so they aren't throwing lots of stuff at her that she just doesn't comprehend. she has been able to focus on what is being asked of her and doing it because she isn't overwhelmed.

Eating textures foods, working on speech articulation. He needs help with a lot of sounds, but S is a big one. He tends to substitute the beginning s with a w and then add the s back in in another part of the word. For example, he calls his slippers his whispers, the word sorry sounds like warries. Jumping with two feet off the ground. He still can't pedal a bike but we haven't had much time to work on it this summer. The huge milestone he started this past spring is reading. We are trying to remember to work on it over the summer to help him retain what he's learned.

Is Brady signing, using tablets for speech or is he verbalizing? I can't remember if you mentioned this before.  :)

We'd like for Aidan to learn how to tie his shoes. We've practiced with him, but he just can't seem to get it. Oh well, it will click eventually.
