This picture and post is dedicated to A and her mama….I am proud, thrilled and happy for A’s mama and A….for working so hard over this past year during speech and language therapy. Everyday A takes little steps in the right direction…little steps leading her to where she should be….and proud of her mama for recognizing the little steps…and how important they are…
Spontaneous and functional language is the language your little one uses in order to make her needs known…to be able to come up to you and express…..with words…what she wants and what she needs. Once I start seeing spontaneous and functional language I am also working on and hoping for reciprocity of language…that is the back and forth language that occurs between two people during a conversation. Your little one’s ability to answer a question, add information, ask you a question, and continue the conversation.
So….I wanted to post a FB message I received from A’s mama…with permission I am proudly posting it here. So proud of you A!!!!!!!!
From A’s mama:
I can’t take it! A and I were outside this morning washing my car…she was trying to move the bucket and said: “it’s too heavy mom”….I asked her where she wanted to move it…she said “mom, we need to wash the other side”….I really am being shocked by her every single day. I just want her to be able to talk and have friends. I don’t have a journal or a blog…so I needed to write to you! Thanks Smama!
Thank you A’s mama….for allowing me to be part of A’s journey and for letting me help your little one get where she needs to be…..everyday she takes little steps…and I know she will get where there!
See you at our next visit!!
