Today’s Celebration? Spoken Word(s)!!!

Today we did a happy dance. During Zane’s speech session today, he spoke the word “in” as clear as day while playing a “put the chip in the holder” game! Soon after it was the word “red”! Now to some people that may seem reasonably small in the world of words, but to have your child who lost all of …

Bye-Bye Baby!

Another day of celebration. As we dropped Gramma off at the bus to go back to Vancouver Island today, we were saying our good-byes and Zane dropped a B Bomb. You got it! “Bye-Bye”! Yup, Bye-Bye Non Verbal!

Puzzles aren’t so puzzling anymore!

This is Zane during one of his ABA therapy sessions working on Receptive Instructions, one week in. Keep in mind while watching it that he was unable to follow the request to “Do Puzzle” just one week ago. He might have picked one piece of the puzzle up and walked away with it and studied it for a long period …

Food For Thought

Some interesting info on diet. We have had much success with the GF/CF/SF (Gluten Free/Casein Free/Soy Free) Diet with our son, as well as many of the supplements which are recommended for kids with ASD.
