He talked, he talked, he talked! My son, Dean Michael, on June 5th 2018 at 5:00 PM talked for the very first time at almost 2 and 1/2 years old. We were having dinner and he wasn’t eating his bread. I asked him, “Do you want your bread?” AND HE REPLIED! “I don’t want it, have it.” I started crying my eyes out and telling him what a good boy he is. My dad comes over and he says, “I don’t want it, you have.” I just…..I just don’t know where this came from. He has such a soft spoken voice. It is very quiet. He is talking to me right now. I heard “No jobs too big, no pups too small” tonight and other little words here and there. The big fuss? He COMMUNICATED. We asked me twice and he replied that he didn’t want his bread anymore. I asked him if he wanted his trampoline and he said “Yes”. My dad wanted to give him a kiss goodbye and he said, “Nah-uh.”
Like COMMUNICATION. I couldn’t be more happy right now and I just had to share this with all of you. ABA and EI has made such a huge difference in his life. I can finally say that I have heard him talk. There is light at the end of the tunnel. I needed to celebrate this moment in blog format, so I can look back and say, “Ya, you talked at this age”. I just wanted to come on here and thank anyone who has prayed for Dean or who has given me support. God heard our prayers today. My faith has never been more empowered.
My little boy is a talker now. We knew it was coming. We could hear more gibberish and a lot more what sounded like words. Now, we can make out phrases and words clearly. We hear you Dean and we love you.

I haven’t commented on your blog before, but just wanted to say I’m so happy for you 🙂
Awe! Thank you so much. This is such a huge moment in my life and in his. I was feeling hopeless before but now he has a better chance fitting in with us neurotypicals. Thank you for commenting! I hope to see more of you on my little slice of the internet. 😊
