A breakthrough, maybe!?
Sean is trying to talk!!! He can say some words on command now. He is saying "Sister"-while pointing to Katy, "Bug"(Katy's nick-name), "Daddy"-while pointing to William,"Mama"-while pointing to me, "Cru-tan"-while pointing to his baby brother(that is the baby's nick-name LOL, don't ask!), "Cocoa"-while pointing to his new cat, and "Bubba" while pointing to his cousin (again a nick-name). He just suddenly started doing this, wow! This is the best he has ever done with speech. Maybe we can build on this and ease some of his frustration to stop this behavior problem of his. I am looking feverishly for any idea of how to help him with his behavior. There is not a lot of research on what really works and I have no idea how insurance coverage works for all this.
