Conversations

I talked with a good friend last night who is a speech pathologist in Southern California. (Thank you Lindsey!) She's very good and had lots of good ideas and suggestions for me. One of them was to start talking about object function at home with Franny. For example, "Here's a crayon. What do we do with this? ... We color with it!" I'm also hoping that soon Franny will start to learn the give and take of conversation, instead of merely repeating what she hears.

So this morning while we were getting out the Play-doh I said, "Here's some blue play-doh. What do we do with this?"

Her answer?

"Play-doh-licious."

Okay, Homer. :)

Good work Lindsey! I have to agree with Franny on this one. I always loved eating the play-doh my mom would make... pretty much just salt (I think)... yummy!

OH my goodness that is hilarious! I actually just started working with a little boy that is 8 and autistic, that is one of the things we do with him in his therapy program. It works really well... Hopefully she catches on!
