Please enjoy the following videos showing some of the fun things that Ethan’s been doing at ABA. He learned how to blow bubbles, added more nouns to his vocabulary, and learned how to play tag!
Since Ethan and his ABA therapist have had a lot of time to build rapport at home, we frequent Hickory, Wilson and South Park, which are all in the area, we've been to Torrance Beach a couple of times, and we recently visited the South Coast Botanic Garden.
As a true mama bear, I was both super excited and worried about Ethan's entry into Torrance Unified School District through LAUNCH preschool, which had a very good reputation as a hybrid program for both typically developing PALS and special needs kids.
PTN will always be the first place that Ethan developed a pre-school based routine and had a life away from mom and away from home. He learned to participate within a community, socialize with other kids, take turns, mimic actions and songs from circle time, sit nicely when asked to, among other things.
