I have several things about autism rolling around in my head, not quite fully formed, but I wanted to post about this before I forget.
Last night Husband and I were lying in bed trying to fall asleep. Kevin is in the adjacent bathroom taking a long time with his evening routine. So I try to urge him on towards finishing.
I holler into the bathroom:
"Kevin, time to get in bed."
"Do you want to go to the circus on Friday?" Yes, we bribe our son to persuade him to do as we desire. Don't you?
"It's time to go to bed."
"What are you doing?"
"Washing. Washing. I am washing yourself."
He is trying so hard to use pronouns. A couple days ago the answer would have been just "Washing." Now he has two pronouns in one sentence, not quite the correct one, but still! We both were amazed and pleased with his new accomplishments in speech. It's great to see new developments, sometimes they get lost among the everyday.
