It's been a little while since I've written. Until yesterday, Colin's speech therapy appointments had really just turned into us discussing whether Colin is autistic or not. She's still arguing that he shows signs of having an Auditory Processing Disorder, while I'm not convinced. I am, however, leaning away from Autism. I'm in the frame … Continue reading Growth.
Colin's appointment was rescheduled. It'll be October 31. I really wanted to cry when they called. I have been anticipating this appointment for so long, we have literally ONE day until the original appointment, and now we have to wait another two weeks. It's so discouraging. However, I've made it my goal to make the … Continue reading Rescheduled.

Today, however, the therapist kind of offended me. She was trying to get him to … Continue reading Right fit?
Today was Colin's first appointment with speech therapy. I feel hopeful, but confused. She began the appointment with an introduction and some questions about Colin's progression. For the evaluation, she started by playing pretend with him. "Mr. Teddy Bear wants to eat, can you feed him?" and then he'd "feed" the teddy bear. At one … Continue reading Speech Therapy
