Im really interested to hear how you go with the Hanen thing. I was paying $120 a week for an hour speech therapy a week for Finn from the age of two and a half. We figured we spent thousands on it and it did not work. They seemed to just ask him questions all the time and reward eye contact with lots of yehs! High five! The kind of kid Finn is ... He just went more into himself. We stopped speech and he got better within months. He is 4 and his speech is now around 2.5 ish. I'm happy with that . I would love to hear how you go!
Finn bit a kid at preschool the other day. I was so upset as he hasn't done that for around a year. But on a happier note he is able to tell me why ( she stole his toy phone) still not good and horrible for little girl but for me we are at least starting to know more about how he feels and why he does stuff.
On a happier note also we seem to of got toileting under wraps . So proud of him . I thought he would not get it but he suprised me. A wrapped up toy transformer for a poo insight but out of reach did the trick and now he goes without reward. He loves transformers and I think he was so happy with it it took the horror out of the toilet.
Finn is still very different to other 4 year olds , he repeats a lot over and over like a broken record. He freaks out if you call him Finn but in his mind he is batman or buzz or superman or Optimus prime.... You frantically try to get it right and the more you get it wrong the more he screams!!!
Gosh , life is interesting that's for sure.
Good luck with the Hanen ! Would love to hear what it's about .
