CONNER SIGNED "OPEN" this morning!!!!
From my reading chair, Conner took me by the hand, and led me upstairs to his room, and handed me a tube of poker chips. (We need to sometimes make things a little more difficult so that he FINDS a way to communicate...). I sat on the floor, with the tube in my lap. He took my hands, and put them ON the tube. So I started saying, and signing "open". I did it several times, and then did it with HIS hands. Finally...he smiles, and signs "open"! :D
We have also been working more on signing "more". He used to do it all the time, but then just starting verbalizing it, rather then signing it. Satisfied with that, his parents stoped doing it. Now he does neither. But....we're working on it again!
An IN home speech therapist comes every Tuesday...and it's nice to have her here...to see what I can do to help more.
Hopefully we can get him communicating more so that he doesn't get to frusterated! Us either!
