Since Carter has been in Speech therapy. I'm just wanting to share what improvements he's made, I know you all know the excited I have for these BIG (what seem like small to others) achievements in his life so far.
This Halloween he picked out his own costume! He participated in trick or treating, literally going door to door ringing the door bell. We gave him choices (rather then just picking what we thought he wanted) and he eliminated costumes by saying "No" and then pointing to the one's he liked, from those options he picked Iron Man =). Which has become his FAVORITE toy asking for it by name!
He chooses undies vs diapers and will take himself to the rest room(Still working on him telling us he has to go, makes me nervous to try night training and out and about training)
He answers "Yes" or "No" when we ask things like Carter do you want to eat he will say "Yes" on his own or "No" no more Carter say yes, or no..
He picks his own clothes and dresses and un dresses himself! He is using his manners and understands them. He tells us "thank-you" or "Please" "Sorry" He mastered the colors red and blue now incorporating green.(this makes me feel good, b/c twin sissy is barley learning colors and just knows the words, not what they are associated with LOL)
He sings along with theme songs, and is talking alot more =)
OMG SHOES! he puts his own shoes on and will ask for his shoes by name
*So I kinda wrote alot thanks for reading, it's a big deal since this time last yr he wasn't doing any of this! Speech has really helped him and now I'm starting to see it just when I thought once a week wasn't doing anything*
