Something amazing happened yesterday, something so simple yet something so amazing. Mr Tumble came on the TV & Archie actually touched his nose when Mr Tumble did! This may be such a small step for some people but as Archie is two but is around 13 months behind in his communication & social development with Autistic tendancies, this is the first time he’s done something like this. He’s unable to understand basic instructions like ‘go get your shoes’ or ‘put on your coat’ so even though he doesn’t touch his nose when asked to just the fact that he’s made progress by visually copying is fantastic and I’m so happy!

Very proud of my Little Man!

      It only lasted two days, he’s completely stopped doing it now and looks at me like I’m crazy when I do it, but at least he did it, I was so proud of him x
