I stopped counting the words that I could remember at 25!! 25 words!! My almost non-verbal boy has more than 25 real words!! O.M.G!
Granted, some are not all that intelligible to people outside of our family and therapists, but they are deliberate and precise for him. I am so incredibly proud of him! ...and relieved, too. The thought of sending him to school 3 full days a week without any words was scaring me, I won't lie.
