Matthew now uses sign and verbalizations to express his wants and needs. His expressive vocabulary has increased to over 50 words. Matthew is now learning new words, practicing communicating with others, and practicing forming words verbally. Matthew’s mother has participated in each session, learning new signs, and taking home ways to help Matthew communicate. When he leaves his appointments, he always says “bye” to the office manager, and blows her a kiss. Not only has Matthew benefited from therapy at the Center; but the staff has also been enriched by his presence!
