- Respond to name on a consistent basis and turn to parent's names on a consistent basis.
He doesn't turn to his name on a consistent basis, but this could be due to his age. He gets engrossed in things that are far more interesting than turning to his name. A hearing test in one week will verify that this is an attention issue vs. hearing issue.
- Respond to basic questions (i.e. "where is the ball?") with a sign or gesture.
Check! He will find anything with a known vocabulary and will point to it or bring it to us.
- Identify at least 30 nouns and 10 verbs by choosing picture.
Hmmm... He'll probably get 30 nouns, but he hasn't figured out the verb thing yet. Maybe we'll work on "jumping" and "sitting" next week!
- Identify 5 body parts on himself or a doll.
He can identify his nose, but that is it at this point in time. If you ask him where his mouth is, he'll point to his nose. If you ask him where is ears are, he'll point to his nose... another thing we're working on.
- Respond to "no."
Check! Though his response is usually to laugh and continue doing what he wants to do! Sigh...
- Engage in social games (i.e. Pat-a-Cake)
Check! He loves "ring around the rosie" and other games we play at home. He doesn't quite get the turn-taking idea of Pat-a-Cake.
- Follow simple routine directions (i.e. put ball in box).
Check! He likes to put things IN other items, so he understands that concept. He may or may not understand "on top" or "beside," but he's a little young for that.
- Use three words in addition to mommy and daddy
Check! Well, sort of. There is no "mommy," but we have daddy, light, doggie, meow, roar, ball, and uh-oh.
- Attempt verbal imitation
Check! He will imitate when he feels like it.
- Imitate bilabial p, b, and m in 2/3 of prompts.
Hmmm... He doesn't do /p/ yet, and /b/ is just emerging. He does say "mamama" in babble but doesn't consistently imitate 2/3 of the time.
- Imitate vowel/consonant combinations with t, p, and n (at, up, and on) in 3/4 of opportunities.
Not so much. He has no /t/ or /p/, so those are missing entirely. He does have /n/, but when he imitates "on" it just sounds like "aw."
- Imitate consonant/vowel combinations (t, d, m, n, p, and b) at 75% of opportunities.
Another one he won't do. He sometimes will imitate "mamama," but none of the others. We have no /t/ or /p/. We are just starting to get a /b/.
