My son has been making phenominal progress and in some aspects is developmentaly and chronalogically at the same level. We are finally anticipating a point probably in the 9 months or less were he will be were he needs to be. What's next? I have devoted all my time and energy getting my son to be where he needs to be and that aspect will soon be over. What if you have been to this point have you done?

Kathy you are never completely done. You will continue devoting your time and energy doing other things with your son. I too remember going through that transition of what now? Continue to monitor his speech, writing, and reading skills which might be a challenge for him later. Use the tools you have learned in therapy to help him grow and continue to have self confidence. We had our son play sports to encourage speech interaction with peers. We continued to put him situations that required him to talk. He is 10 years old and is doing well. Up to now he was struggling with speed of reading and writing skills. Just this summer we found out that he has a tracking issues with his eyes and might be his final piece of his puzzle. The eye dr recommended eye therapy and we are noticing some huge leaps in his speed. When he is tired we notice apraxia speech we don't focus on that so much when it is sleep that he needs. Way to go to both you and your son for all the hard work.
