The key to helping Alyssa learn is building her confidence. We do a lot of the same activities over and over in order to build her up.
Lots of positive reinforcement too!
To Communicate, and to help her understand the world around her are my main goals.
She is understanding and aware of so much more.
She never ceases to amaze me!
Yesterday we did a new activity, it’s a puzzle where you Match up the word and picture. It is an activity which she would need a lot of support because she doesn’t read.
Some words that are familiar to her like
Cat dog ect she can recognize and match.
She did so many that I didn’t expect her to know.
Words like spoon, bike,bus,egg,train she was able to match. She did it with complete confidence which I love!
She is still learning and progressing and the best part is how proud she is of herself.
She was even able to help my niece by finding the picture that went with her words when she couldn’t.
Of course there is was a little miscommunication about who put the pieces together and whose turn it was.
I didn’t think reading or writing would be something she would be able to do. Now I am rethinking that.
She is also identifying the pictures verbally and her words seem to be a getting clearer.
There is so much our kids are capable of. You have to try, I would never know these skills were t if I didn’t. Sometimes it doesn’t work or she gets frustrated and that’s okay. We try again later or a different way.
I am just so proud and happy with the progress she has made and how happy it makes her.
