and a p.s.

thank you guys for being as excited as i am about the squirm’s person!

my dear blog buddy, hakea, was kind enough to link me to a couple of websites showing drawing development.  since a couple of people have asked me about it, i thought i would do a quick follow up.

according to this site, a three year old typically draws a person like this –>

by age four, the child has usually progressed to something a little more like this.

<——————— while the squirt isn’t quite to that level, he isn’t even 3.5 yet, so i am thinking the next six months could be very exciting!!

    Very exciting indeed!

    All my years of working with kids with Autism (from age 5), I never once saw them draw. I can’t recall them ever having an interest in it. It’s really great that Squirm can focus his energy on art.

    My nearly-6 year-old has very little interest in drawing, and he draws like a 3 year-old. They’re all different.

      they are starting to suspect that the squirm’s language delay might be just that, and not autism….he does seem to have fewer autism-type symptoms these days, while the squirt seems to have more and more!!

        that’s interesting, and good in a different way.

        it’s a good thing that you haven’t bought into the ‘label’ and you have continued to treat him as a little boy with endless possibilities.

        my dad always said about experts “an ‘ex’ is a has-been, and a ‘spurt’ is a drip under pressure”.

    I think he’s on his way to being a fabulous artist. 🙂
