We went out for the day trying to keep Alyssa awake all day so she would sleep at night . I ran a few errands , we went to a store , grabbed lunch and came home . My sister was going to the pond near us so I pushed my luck and I brought her
. I was very happy because she picked out two things for herself .
She hardly ever will pick anything or even allow me to het something for her . She picked an animal book and big stuffed tiger .
We went to the pond and came home to a late dinner , it was ready for us when we got home 😊
I was asking her to tell her Dad what we did today. She is minimally verbal but will sometimes answer with one word .
I do this to help her retrieval skills and help her male connections between words and actions . Mainly just reinforcing everything
She was engaging and I was helping to prompt her and then she got up and left the table . I was trying to have show her Dad what she picked at the store.
She came back with her IPad .
She opened up her Proloquo2Go app and hit store . She never does this on her own .
I was so surprised , she was able to tell him she got a book and tiger . She also told him she went swimming !
She is so resistant to independently using her speech device.
This was a huge step !
Things seem to connecting a little more .
