In our family's case, right now. It is with Aaden, and him just starting his school. Now don't get me wrong- we are starting his 4th week of school, and we have seen tremendous improvement!!!! Definitely beyond any expectations I ever had. We have seen him transform from a little man to a pre-schooler!! He enjoys going to school everyday, and gets upset on the weekends when he can't go. That right there is huge to me, considering when I worked, he would cry everyday when I dropped him off at daycare.
From day one Aaden ran up to his teacher and gave her the biggest hug, he had never met her before! Which is something major for Aaden to do. We have witnessed him making his own choices, doing a few things more independently. Asking for things without whining, and in full sentences. He has memorized multiple nursery rhymes. He is developing even more of an imagination! Learning to write his name, and to do simple addition. I hear him practicing all the time.
Short story- The other day I was washing my face, and of course, he was right under my feet, I heard him say, evil 6. So what automatically comes to my head... the mark of the beast. Don't ask why. haha I just heard him say evil 6. I asked him who taught him that, and it wasn't a nice thing to say. Well little turd doesn't lie,, he said his teacher taught him that. I asked him to repeat it, he said 1 plus 5 evil 6. I love his little speech impairments. ;) Smart boy.
Overall, he is just a happier version of himself.
We are currently taking half of the medication he was on previously, until we see his new developmental pediatrician in a month. On that note, it took forever to find the right doctor. So many doctors here were not taking new patients, or they wouldn't see Aaden until he was 5 or 6. Well I'm positive Aaden isn't the only almost 4 year old with issues. I'm not sure why it was so difficult to find one to see him, PHEW. Finally we are on the waiting list for an evaluation, and we will go from there.
Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers, they are always appreciated.
Until next time...
