    Autism Pre-Verbal Singing

    Whenever I’m asked about Ethan’s speech I always describe him as non-verbal. I think this is possibly because even though I know that we, thankfully, have been starting to acquire words, Ethan still couldn’t communicate with people outside of the family unit. Other people tell me that Ethan is pre-verbal as he does make sounds, and is attempting to communicate with us. I’m worried about using this term as this term, to me, means that Ethan will one day be able to talk. I really hope this is true but we have no way of knowing for sure. Only time will tell! We didn’t have a very good weekend and…

    Me & Mine March 2015

    This month has been a very busy month, we went on our first holiday as a family of four and we have been preparing Ethan for school. Every day there has been something to do, be it an appointment or a day out. We treated ourselves to a family portrait session whilst at Center Parcs. The photos are taken at a Pret-a-Portrait studio, and considering the photographer had to deal with a baby and a very busy throwing Ethan he got some great shots of us. So for this months Me and Mine I thought I would share our favorite family shots. They were taken at the beginning of the…

    Letters and Logos

    Ethan is obsessed with you tube at the moment and we have discovered the weird and wonderful videos that people make. He watches videos of people opening kinder eggs and surprise eggs. Sometimes people make play dough eggs to open. I have discovered that people create videos with Peppa Pig play sets and Thomas train sets. I’m amazed at the videos Ethan has found. This weekend Ethan discovered logos, we have had the BBC News theme tune for weeks so it made a nice change. I think the Bathtime Buddies has rekindled Ethan’s love of letters and whilst watching the videos he has been calling out the letters that he…

    Me & Mine January 2015

    This month I had every intention of treating us to a remote control for the camera so it would be easier to take our family photos. My brother gave us a voucher for Christmas and it was going to be our treat, I just haven’t been able to get my heard around ordering it. Yesterday I regretted that as I set the camera timer and raced backwards and forwards to the sofa. We have actually got a selfie stick for the GoPro which we could have used but we haven’t even tested that yet. So here is this months Me and Mine Photo. Ethan always stands in the far corner…

    Learning From YouTube – The Wonders Of The iPad!

    Ethan loves his iPad, it wasn’t an item that was brought for him but it has turned out to be his favourite thing. As much as I hate it Ethan can be on the iPad all day if we let him. It’s not something I’m proud off but it keeps Ethan busy and safe. Without the iPad Ethan will climb, and for someone who has no sense of danger that isn’t a good mix. We have only ever downloaded educational apps and I believe this is how Ethan knows all of his numbers and letters. Unfortunately Ethan has discovered YouTube. I have switched off the app and moved it many…
