Communication

Jacob was cooperative and imitated upon request.

He was able to repeat “I want ____” phrasing and minimal prompts but needed word by word prompting to combine any other 3 word utterance.  He labeled “-ing” pictures (eating, etc.) in a book.  He relied on 1 word utterances to communicate.

Jacob needed reminders to clean his mouth and excessive saliva and to swallow.

I need to continue modeling 3 word phrases and encourage him to repeat.  I need to really work on waiting for Jacob to initiate language vs. anticipating what he wants.
