It’s been a while since I did an update on my sweet silly Jamey, who is diagnosed as autistic, speech delayed and also just a wee bit spoiled. We’ve been doing a dye free diet for a while now, and we also added in some high powered vitamins and fish oil.
Who is now 4!
Who is now counting to ten!
Who is now…talking?
What is this? What happened to the boy who had about 20 words when he was tested for PPCD?
Well, he found some new ones. About 140 more, to be exact.
Jamey now has a functional vocabulary of over 150 words. With new ones coming every day. He doesn’t rely on sign language any more. If he knows the word, he says it.
Not always so well, but he tries.
His teacher, Miss K, and her assistants have done such a good job with him this year. I mean, it is just remarkable what being in a class of other talkers has done for Jamey.
I spent some time in his classroom for their holiday party and I am just in awe of what the teachers and assistants are able to do with these kids. Let me tell you, I’ll be sticking to coupon clipping because I couldn’t make it..
I can’t wait to see what’s next for my sweet boy. I do know we’re going to continue with his dye free, MSG free, preservative free diet. Not exactly a Feingold diet, but close enough. I’m always happy to talk about what we’re doing with Jamey, so if you have any questions, let me know!
