Speech is Danny's downfall. Social communication in general is fairly hard for him, but I honestly think a lot of that is because he has to work SO hard to get his point across. He has always been a vocal child, but there seems to be some kind of motor planning or apraxia issue. He works and works at speech, but sequencing even the most basic CV combinations is just...hard for him. You can see his little brain working whenever he tries to talk.
Speech was also the hardest for Alex to get. He still struggles with social speech and stuttering when he is excited or really trying to get his point across. But it seemed like once we started working on getting his sensory issues met he was more open to learning.
Following directions, especially when it requires sitting down and listening. He can sit down on his own terms, but he gets really frustrated if he doesn't "get it" very quickly and basically run away.
