Sam is obsessed with numbers. He can count up to five perfectly, and ten shakily. He can sort of tell time, but only certain times (e.g. 7:00 in the evening is the cut-off time for fighting, so swords have to be put away).
His speech therapist makes a plan with him each session. She numbers a paper 1-3 and draws each thing they will do together. Usually it’s something like 1. Legos (they “drill” certain sounds and she gives him Legos to build with), 2. game (more words), 3. bubbles.
We’ve started doing plans at home. He now draws his own numbers:
My sister drew this one. It’s Spongebob Squarepants, Sieger (we’ve been playing on the computer as well as building our own castles with Playmobil guys and knocking them down with our catapult), and Shaun the Sheep (for Grace).
A couple days ago, Sam asked to make a plan but he didn’t want to draw the numbers OR tell me what he wanted to do. He just kept saying “Mama do it.” SO I made the plan I wanted.
1. knitting, 2. knitting, 3. knitting, 4, knitting! When Sam complained, I added Spongebob.
Yes, he is knitting. What of it?
