Hi all. It's been over a month since I've kept in touch about Jeremy. Things have been going along well. The need for more therapy is apparent. And thank goodness for insurance now paying for services! Behavioral therapy should start up again in the next 2 weeks or so. And we are so happy because we saw the most change in him with that therapy.
He had his first speech therapy appointment last Monday and he'll have his first occupational therapy appointment this coming Friday. Each of those is once a week. I'm hoping the regional center will help us cover those co-pays too since Kaiser is suggesting them for his Autism. The regional center is in the process of approving co-pay assistance for the behavioral therapy.
Anyway...there are changes on the horizon that are exciting and that I can't quite speak of yet. So stay tuned.
Jeremy is coming along awesomely with new words that he imitates. We are working on non-verbal commands and hope that therapy will start to guide us in the right direction so that we can at least start communicating in the simplest ways. We know it's all there...we just have to find the way to get to it in that beautiful brain of his : )
