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.
