Words from Colin May 13th-August 30th, 2009

31 Aug

Our first set of words we shared was about 130 so these are in addition to those.  I guess that means Colin can say about 230-250 words right now.  He is doing better with saying two word sentences consistently so we will continue to encourage that and, when possible, start to encourage more three word sentences.  He continues to see a therapist once a week for his language and cognitive development and she is pleased with his progress (as are we).  He is now doing simple puzzles with interlocking pieces (without pegs).  He still astounds us with his strength and agility.

1. chair (needs reinforcement with it).

2. “bye-bye” now includes the “b” sound (as of May 13th)
