Starting Speech Therapy Again

Wednesday, Joseph and I met his new speech therapist, Lori. She seemed to understand Joseph and his motivations pretty well, which I think is key to making progress with him. Instead of trying to get him to sit at the table with her, she sat down on the floor and invited him to do the same. He wasn't terribly cooperative yet, he kept hiding under the table and had trouble getting distracted by the toys on top of her cabinet, but she got him to talk a bit, asking for parts of Mr. Potatohead, etc.

In other news, we went on Joseph's first field trip today, and in a couple of weeks, we've got an appointment at the Children's Hospital Autism Center where we can begin the process of having Joseph fully assessed. Hopefully we'll have a better idea of what we can expect from him, and what help he needs from us.
