- Both days he’s gone to the bathroom for the teachers at school at least once. This is huge, as he’s super shy about using the bathroom for anyone other than Mom/Dad.
- Both days, he’s been happy to see me when we got there, but independently said “byebye” to the teacher. Well, in honestly, he grabbed my hand and went walking out while saying byebye.
- Neither day has involved tears at the drop off.
I am on the impressed side right now with the communication at CPCD. Specifically, on Monday during our Teacher home visit, we told his teacher that Dominic gets private speech therapy on Tuesday mornings, so if the school ST could be some other day we would appreciate it. Tuesday, he brought home an introductory letter from his speech therapist with a phone number and I called and left a message. Wednesday, she called me back, and let me know that Lori had advised her about the private speech therapy being on Tuesdays, and that as a result she would schedule his school therapy for Friday. We chatted for a bit about the history behind his speech regression, and she mentioned that she had a set of pictures on a ring to help him start using verbs (most of his independent words are nouns right now) that she’d give us. She sounds very nice and on top of things.
