Tuesday was therapy day.
Jean, Jason's speech therapist, came over in the afternoon. She wrote on his paperwork, "Jason's pointing & vocalizing with intent. Making more sound & word attempts." The goals that we need to work on are to Increase his understanding & use of language, and Increase play skills. Her suggestions were, "Now that he's listening to speech more, work on him answering some simple requests. ex: puzzles-put out a few pieces (2-3) & ask him to find the _ or get the _ . This helps his understanding of language. ex: Meals-where's your spoon? cup? cheese? milk?, etc. Bathtime-where's your (body part)? Nap/Bedtime -get a book. I think we see Jean one more time before his IEP.
Paula also came and we discussed what we wanted on his transition report for his IEP. She showed us an online source for free books, that can be read to you. Brett found an IPod app that you can customize with pictures and your own voice. It's pretty cool. We are going to try and use it more with Jason when we are going places, or doing things.
I can't believe he's already 3 years old. Paula has been coming to our house ever other week since he was about 8 months old. Change is hard, but it will be good for Jason.
