This lovely boy is aged 8 on the outside but inside he is around 3 years old. I'm working a lot more with him at the moment which is nice because it means we can get to know each other better. Today we shared a book together. After reading the story I asked him which picture in the book was his favourite. He quickly decided on the page with a large and very clear picture of a house. 'Would you like to draw me a picture of the house?' I asked. He said he would and we found some paper and a pencil and he set about the task. He drew a large circle. He can do circles and straight lines and the ones he does are good and praise goes a long way.
'That's a good house' I said 'what about the windows?'
' I don't want to do those' he said.
'A door?' I suggested.
'How will we get into the house?' I asked
'knock' he replied!
Of course, silly me.
