so I picked Dominic up from preschool this morning, and his teacher told me that today, he participated in Share time. This meant that he actually stood up in front of his class, showed them the toy du jour (a small purple bouncy ball), described it (said "purple ball") and then took questions. Mrs H said that he looked at kids w/hands up in the eye, and used their name. Color me floored. HUGE step for him.
'course, he followed it with a low compliance / low eye contact afternoon at Alpine, but still. Wow.
