Month 2


Here we are at the start of month 2. Now that we have gotten the diet/supplements down we are going to start focusing on developmental growth. So many therapies to choose from....ABA, RDI, or DIR/Floortime. We have chosen (at least for now) to do Floortime created by Stanley Greenspan. In addition to Will's hour of OT and hour of special instruction each week (Babies Can't Wait doesn't have a speech therapist right now) we are going to work towards adding 2.5 hours a day of Floortime a day.

There are some evaluations and training we will be doing with the Floortime Atlanta group but for right now Kevin and I are just going to jump right in. There is enough information on the Internet and in the book we have been reading, The Child with Special Needs by Stanley Greenspan, to at least get us started.

(I've been slacking on keeping track of what he eats... Nothing really new, lots of fruit and veggies. He hasn't been that crazy about meat lately. )


Just a tidbit of information:
The word Autism actually means "alone" or "on their own". I didn't know that... makes sense but also makes me sad.
