There is definite progress being made on the question and answers front. She is practicing a lot, but I think she is really starting to grasp it. I think she understands a question needs an answer instead of an echo. Her answers are typically one size fits all, but it is progress and she is learning more and more proper responses all the time.

Her developmental therapist was in awe this week of the progress she has made since she saw her last Tuesday. She's saying multisyllabic words, she's answering questions, she is speaking in sentences (some of the time). I scarcely had to translate any of her words for the therapist. Her speech therapist is going to be through the roof the next time we see her. It is just so unbelievable. Hell, its miraculous.
