Two Words I Never Tire of Hearing

Autistic kids are different and their speech does not just blossom all at once like other children, but comes along slowly. Each milestone and new word is a new victory for this little family. Adam’s speech is still coming along very slow, but it’s getting better each and every day!

At the beginning of this month Adam’s ABA therapist worked on combining two words with Adam. His favorite color is “blue” and his favorite word is “car.” She was able to get him to say “blue car”. But to my surprise it didn’t just stop there. Soon Adam was pointing out every blue car he saw on the road while we were traveling. “Blue car!” he would point. “Car, car, car, car” he would count.

And it didn’t stop there! Now as we pass the blue cars he adds a third word: “bye-bye blue car”. Let me tell you that the words “blue car” are some of the sweetest words in the world, and some I will never tire of hearing!

Adam says “Blue Car” (It’s at the end of the video.)

What is a milestone your child has reached that you are proud of?

  1. Thanks for sharing. Your story is encouraging.

    My 2-year-old grandson is dealing with “something”. We aren’t sure yet if he’s autistic or something else but he isn’t talking yet or doing a lot of other things kids his age do. He started occupational therapy about 4 weeks ago and is actually making progress. But yesterday he high-fived us. It was the first time. We were ecstatic and made such a big deal out of it. He looked pleased at the attention and surprised, too. But a high-five from a 2-year-old isn’t a big deal to most people but it was for us. So I know what you’re talking about.
