Blake at 3 years old


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.

Some info about Blake:

Favourite Toys -  Toilet train Bing, Cars, train set, building blocks, Iggle Piggle soft toy

  9. Hope Blake had a lovely Birthday! I don't know much about autism but ALL of the boys in our family (7 so far) have all been behind on milestones and caught up in the end x

  10. Blake looks so happy considering his lack of speech development. My niece is 3 in January and she isn't talking at all yet, my sister is hoping to start speech therapy soon. I'm sure Blake will get there soon and you get some much needed answers.

  11. I hope you get some answers, although I would say that every kid is unique in terms of the pace of their development and they all have different learning styles. Some are visual bods but others learn via sound or even touch and that remains true for us as adults.

  14. Happy Birthday to your little man, he is so adorable and I am so glad to hear he is getting help. If it helps at all my eldest didn't say anything until after he was 2.5yrs old and now has a great vocabulary. Just take each day as it comes :)
