Applied Behavior Analysis:
Tyler just turned three years old. His parents have concerns about Tyler’s development compared to his peers. Tyler only says three words regularly, including his name, by which he refers to himself instead of using personal pronouns. Tyler prefers to point to objects he wants instead of talking and often becomes frustrated when caregivers cannot understand what he wants. While Tyler can walk, he often falls when trying to run. Tyler’s parents have requested an evaluation to determine whether he is meeting developmental milestones and what services, if any, may help him.
