Logan Update

Turns out...shortly after Logan's negative behaviors began we did find out he had a double ear infection. He's been on antibiotics for 8 days now and his behavior is improving. He still gets frustrated at meal times, but he is overall more agreeable. I have also discovered that his frustrations are due to his inability to communicate what he wants. I think he is now particular about what I feed him and how I feed it to him. I'm not sure when he wants to feed himself and when he wants me to feed him.

I've been so proud of his speech lately!! It is coming so far so quickly.
A couple of weeks ago he had a session with his B-3 early childhood teacher and here's the words he used during that session.
Imitated:
circle
open
shut
fish
horse
duck
push
nose
color
Logan
eat
mmm
pop

Spontaneous:
go
eyes
dog (barking)
uh oh


Today, he had a session with his speech therapist, and he set new record for spontaneous words!!
Imitated:
duck
up
puppy
wow
tractor
signed fish and butterfly

Spontaneous:
flower
woof
apple
ball
boat
signed kitten
car
down
truck
mmm
cookie
hat
bath
oink
glasses

My favorite were APPLE and BOAT! I hadn't heard those before!! Go Logan!

I'm glad Logan's behavior is better. A double ear infection would make anyone miserable!

Logan is doing so great with his words. You have to get a video clip of him saying those words!
