When he has violated rules, Noah understands correctly, and he does not oppose the penalties imposed on him.
Noah chatters a lot, but it is incomprehensible. He repeats any syllable he hears. Gestures help him communicate with others and make them clearly understand what he wants or wants to do. Noah is working with a speech therapist to improve his speech abilities.
Noah loves to play with other children, and he manages to play with games for a long time. He is interested in musical toys, cars and painting with watercolors. He plays for his purpose with toys.
