He is a highly skilled 3 year old, issues are having a lot of language , words , phrases andsentences and he uses them not in the right moments, when asked questions he responds sometimes, he answers to questions like what color is this, he is responding to those more, but a question like: do you want to go the pool ( he doesn give you a yes), he know he is going and gets happy but he doesn't give you that feedback verbally. His gross motor and fine skills very good, coordination, overall healh. Is that interaction the problem and that he doesn't socialize much at preschool. He is super happy and doesn't bother , no tantrums, but doesn't join circle time, some games etc.
I paid speech therapy, and felt like I can do what she was doing at home myself, specially since the amount he was receiving was so little , two half hours a week. I am paying aba and I am very disappointed at the level of engagement of the therapist, again I feel I do betther when I work with him. I am seriously thinking on stopping the search of that great therapist and educate myself more and more , I am a stay home mom, and I know him better thatn anybody, my heart is shouting me make a schedule and work with him religiously yourself. ANy thoughts , ideas, thanks a lot! I don't want to put him in the state program, I always did private therapy.
