DS1 just turned 4. He has been walking for a few months and has 0 words and signs. Just recently he has started hiding when he has to poop which I know is one of the first readyness signs. Our physiatrist brought it up a few months ago and it felt like a waste then. He had JUST started walking and had no desire to sit still for a moment. There was a whole world to explore.
He struggles with communication, right now all he can do is lead us or hand us what he wants opened, etc. When it comes to PECS he can't really choose what he wants/needs. If you present him with bubbles and a blank card he will ALWAYS pick the bubbles. As soon as you enter in a second choice he just reaches with his left hand every time, so I don't think that will be a reliable method anytime soon.
At times his diaper is dry but he doesn't seem to care if he's wet or dirty.
I don't want to wait too long but developmentally he's about 15-18 months old. I also don't want to push to hard too quickly either.
For some reason this is one of those things that seems so daunting.
To my boys: I will love you for you Not for what you have done or what you will become I will love you for you I will give you the love The love that you never knew
