So I wrote here that were we were introducing a speech training video Gemiini for non-verbals.
We’ve been doing the video 3 x’s a day a little over a week now and pretty much all we’ve gotten so far is Finn throwing his arms up as if in question when asked, “what does a cat say?”
Well today our sitter Erin told us while on the phone with her sister, Finn said “Meow” once before being asked what a cat says, and then again after they responded “meow”. Her sister Kerri also heard it on the other end!
We are so excited to hear this news. We can’t wait for him to start really talking with prompts instead of only spontaneously! The therapy in combination with MB12 and supplements we’ve been doing really have made the past 4 months much more bearable. Things are not getting worse, they are getting better, much better. Just last week, Finn offered a cup to his therapist to drink out of and fed a babydoll! His social skills are slowly but surely improving and all of our hard work is starting to pay off. He is understanding us now, when before we didn’t even think he knew his own name. How rewarding it is to tell him it’s “bath-time” and to see him to head up the stairs to the bathroom! We are truly grateful for the changes we have seen so far and can only pray it will continue to get better.
