Speech came early this week!

Usually B has speech and then two days later W has speech but W's SLP had to reschedule so both boys had speech on the same day :)

W was really spacey during his session--he couldn't focus on anything and his SLP is the type to want to completely finish an activity before she moves on and there are days that he just won't be redirected back to what she has pulled out and she seems frustrated.  He's one, though, and its gonna happen, you know?  On days like this, he gets more done if the therapist just rolls with it and does short bursts of each activity to keep up with his shortened attention span.  When she just keeps trying to bring him back to her chosen activity, he just stops participating.

My Busy Little B had a good session with his SLP.  He went up on his Focalin a couple months ago and ever since he's just had really really great sessions.  Not just on focusing on what he's doing and participating but in being able to recall and tell me about what he did.  For years, any time you asked him about school or therapy, he just shrugged and said "I don't know" or "I don't remember" so his willingness and ability to tell me all about it is awesome :D
