Daniel self-identified for the first time tonight. We were asking him everyone’s name at dinner (a normal family activity around here) and he was naming everyone as usual. But TODAY, when we got around to him and asked “who is this?” he said Daniel! 

He’s 5, so this probably doesn’t seem like a big deal, but for us it is. He’s been able to identify teachers and peers by name for over a year, but he had no name for himself. Self-identification is a goal on his IEP. We have *actively* worked for this moment. So. Big day around here. 

Obviously I also made him do it again (a whole bunch of times) so I could get it on video and OF COURSE that video is going on Instagram and Facebook so you can all see it.
