Can you believe that Kevin can count up to 50 now? Yes, he stumbles over some of the numbers (ten, twelve, etc), but he can do it with a few little nudges from either me or his speech therapist. He also has almost all of the days of the week down pat as well. The other day I taught him to say "come here" and he also says "I'm going to walk". I have tried to get him to say "I'm going FOR A walk", but no go. No matter though - I'll take it. And so will he.
He isn't getting frustrated as often as he used to. Partly because he is able to say much more than he used to and I think in part because he has just accepted that he is limited and needs to find alternate modes of communication at times. The therapist even mentioned today that she is seeing a difference in the last few weeks and I totally agree.
All around, really. I really need to video tape him so that you guys can all see the difference too. You would just be amazed.
