This will be uploading on the final week of the semester. I am currently writing this the week before, so right now it is the beginning of week 7. I will soon be having a September semester wrap up post and also a semester beginning post as well for the October to December semester which is the final one of the year. I will actually be getting a two week break from school at the end of the year, I believe. I still have yet to do my September project 200 pan update post. I will probably work on that one after this one. Anyway, Dean has been doing amazing with his therapy. He still isn’t talking and I still haven’t heard from the school. He is doing so well though. He just starting matching identical flash cards, so I am trying to buy him different flash cards to do the matching game with. He is super into firetrucks and I will have redone his room by now. You will be seeing a Dean room tour. Not sure if his closet will be done, but his room will be. He still has a bunch of junk in his closet. I think I will make his closet a separate post. I don’t think that I’ll get it done any time soon.

Dean did great today on programs. We worked on requesting songs using the PECS. Dean also was imitating me on blowing. Dean did great sitting and transitioned well from break to play. Dean was attempting some words today and was more vocal this morning.

Explained to therapist program title for matching is identical 2D matching with everyday objects as it reflected the cards therapists were already using, explained songs are to be done with PECS each session so child is exposed to requesting items other than food. Grandparent shown song request with PECS.
