|This is him looking for cars when we cross the street. I say "Look left. Look right." and he does! He looks both ways and then reaches up for my hand. He's such a good little boy.|
|Spencer loves the little boy he's holding hands with... Joe Joe. Too bad Joe Joe doesn't reciprocate. He's a cute little boy but hasn't learned to play with other kids yet.|
I'll post more about his school inside the classroom later. But for now...let's just say he's been doing amazing! He's already speaking a few sentences, albeit not quite super clear, but he's doing it. Yay! for Spencer.
Oh, and one other update... I've been talking to a few people about his shaking hands and a few teachers have said they think he might have some sensory issues (where he needs pressure massage and other ways to calm himself down rather than doing the shaking thing with his hands... Just as another option). Then it just so happened that a few days ago, the Occupational Therapist noticed him doing his shaking while she was in the classroom for another child. She's going to test him and we may get some extra help in that area so he may be able to sleep better at night and it might also help with his speech (since he may get a little overly excited but not know how to calm down, he may get sensory overload and his brain can't focus on speech). His shaking is just like how some children scream when they are excited. It's normal... they're just going to give me ways to assist... without us having to pay for it and him getting it inside the classroom. Awesome, huh? So there's everyone's update. :)
