Things have been MUCH better with our Asperger boys this week, so I didn't have to look too far to find "wonderful" things to report.
Big Guy is showing great initiative in his newest college class, CIS (computer information systems). Much of the work is done outside the classroom setting, with regular deadlines set for the chapters. Big Guy has completed each section well before it's due, and has even set aside time on his "off" days to go to the computer lab and work on his assignments. He was also called in to work four days last week, after not working at all the week before.
Little Guy made some progress with eating. During Sunday dinner, he sat at the table with us and actually ate one of the foods the rest of the family was eating - rice. We usually end up bringing out yogurt or applesauce after we offer him whatever the rest of the family is eating, so this was a big step. Little Guy is still wanting to sit on the toilet 1-2 times a day, and I'm thinking about breaking out the underwear again in another week or so. Hopefully, he's grown more accustomed to the toilet and won't feel so anxious this time around.
It's been two weeks and two days since Little Guy's preschool evaluation, and I have yet to hear from the school. I put in a phone call today and hope it will get the ball rolling. With Little Guy's third birthday only 5 weeks away, we are cutting it close for our goal of four weeks for transition between the toddler and preschool programs.
