first of all i am all for great deals!
at target in the $1 bin i found plastic
cows, horses, goats, and pigs.
they are great purchases for
therapy/playtime sessions at home.
i have been showing him the cow,
"moo says the cow.
the cow says moo."
for the past week.
this morning there was a breakthrough.
he responded, "oooo" several times
after showing him the cow.
not all therapy sessions are successful.
sometimes alexander just looks and smiles,
then is off to find a ball.
yesterday was not the case,
it was a fabulous session.
alexander not only signed more,
but simultaneously said, "mmm".
during the sound check we used instruments
to make noises 3ft and then 6ft away.
he turned to all of the noises even while being distracted.
then he imitated some ling sounds the therapist made.
he only was able to do it a few times before getting distracted.
what is next?
tomorrow i will add the hearing aid.
here's to surround sound!
