On Wednesday, January 13th, Oliver had an exceptional day in his class. Watching from the waiting room on the other side of the two-way mirror, I felt an abundance of pride. He made eye contact with and, unprompted, said “Hi” to every teacher in the room, all separately and at different times. He made eye contact with and smiled at the other children. He sat down and played with three different children individually and at different times. He spoke words, he pointed, he imitated. He is making so much progress every day! It is beautiful watching him grow into a social, self-calming little boy.
