We’ve been having another challenging issue with Mr. Gavin, that is less of a problem and more of an annoyance. For some reason, he has been not wanting to use his words. This is really unusual, at least for him.
Instead of saying, “I’m hungry, can I have breakfast?”, he simply walks around making weird noises.
When he was in the hospital, instead of saying “can I have a drink?”, he would grunt and point. WTF…..????
He has exceptional language skills and the truth is, most of the time we can’t get him to stop talking. His psychologist believes this is simply part of the current power struggle and I have to say that I agree.
We have told Gavin that ofbhe doesn’t use his words that we can’t hear him, or something to that affect.
Do any of your kids do anything like this? I realize Gavin is a bit different but I was just wondering how you handled it of this was something you have experienced?
Please keep in mind that he hasn’t lost the words, he’s just choosing not to use them. Does that make sense?
