He's actually been DEMANDNG people pay more attention to him when he is speaking. GOOD FOR HIM!!!!! This is in no way a bad thing and a
great stride towards self-advocacy! This new expectation he has, this demand from him is something pretty new, but today I question if this maybe has been something building up inside of him for many, many years and today was the day he figured out how to let the rest of us know that HE WILL BE HEARD! Recently, he blurted out to dad "you're
always ignoring me, you're always on your phone." Dad is self-employed and is on his phone a lot for his business, but NEVER ignores Josh (he just multitasks)! To me, Josh has demanded, "mom, look at me!!!!"
