Blake turned 3 on the 16th December He is unfortunately behind in some areas of his development especially when it comes to his speech and understanding. Pre-school as well as other professionals are really helping and we are starting to do PECs (picture exchange communication) with him which is really going well. He still doesn't say an awful lot however at least we are getting support with him. We are currently awaiting a referral to the community paediatric service, hopefully we will soon know more about what is going on. There has been talk that he shows a few signs of autism and I guess this is something that will be talked about as I don't really know that much about autism other than info I have found on google.
