Randy will follow one-step directions with moderate prompting on 7/10 trials-partially achieved

In terms of receptive language, Randy is to follow one-step commands in the context of play. The commands he follows are predictable given the context of the activity. For example, he will put balls in a ball popper when requested to do so. He is not following novel one-step commands in the context of play. Same aged peers are typically demonstrating their understanding of language by identifying body parts, choosing one object from a group of five, and following two-step related commands.
Regarding expressive language, Randy ~10 words per therapy session. This has increased since the last status report in April wen Randy was imitating ~5 words per therapy session. Imitation is an important skill for increasing expressive vocabulary. Currently, Randy is saying ~20 words independently. At 24 months of age, children are typically saying 50 words independently.
