Another great week with 90%+ of his total mands above full prompt! This week, his therapist also began working with him on imitation skills and listener responding. Next week, we switch to a three day per week schedule. I think he'll be just fine with it.
Not too much progress on shapes this week. Her colors are still 100%. I'm mainly using various shape sorters as teaching tools. When I use our shapes beanbags, she's very focused on the color instead of the shape. She does much better with a different kind of toy altogether.
Poor Pete is sick this week, too. He's also wearing socks on his hands because he won't stop scratching his head. He looks like a cat attacked his forehead right now, despite the fact that I'm clipping his nails as short as I can get them each night. I hope this phase passes quickly.
Saturday is the feast of the Archangels. Last year, we did a coloring page. This year, I thought about making an angel food cake, but none of us really like it. So, instead I'm going to make a devil's food cake and add a St. Michael cake topper. Works for me!
