Words he can say:
Gro (sounds more like ga)--gross
Ilk--milk (not sure how to explain how it comes out sounding)
Pee--push (like push the button)
Ha--hard (like push the button hard)
Brr (I know this really isn't a word but still)
Nah nah (my mom)
Ca pa--call papa (my dad)
A snaaaaack-Lol a snack he drags the a out!
*I think he's trying to say his sisters name (kenzie) and his brothers name (Jackson) every now and then.
Body parts he can point to when asked where it is:
*eyes and hand are only some of the time.
He can follow two step directions as well.
we went to the evaluation and of course they feel like he needs their services. We would have to pay $7500 after insurance kicks in, and honestly, we just don't have that kind of money, even doing a payment plan. For now, we declined the services. We do feel like he's just doing this at his own pace and he's added probably 15-20 words since I posted this. Where do I go from here? How do I work with him so he is talking more and doing more? Do I just ride it out or is there anything I can do to get him going?
