Any one been there and done that? I am signed up for training on the 17th of this month. I would love to hear any good or bad experiences from the clinics and/or trainings they have available.
this year has been the largest gain in language aquisition but expression is a huge problem. We keep trying new things and new approaches, iSpy game is working a little bit, he really wants to stay with his compulsions and obsessions which I think hinders his growth. We are working on meds for obsessive verbalizations, don't know how else to curtail that problem.
My son is soaking it up. This was the perfect time to start it. Does your son know his letters and sounds? Keep at it. My son has come so far. Communicating Partners by James MacDonald helped me a lot for the last few years. I learned some methods to help, not hinder, my son's speech and confidence.
unfortunately the level was a little too high for my son his behavioral issues take over and he needs sensory breaks to be able to comply. I try and use the V/V with his iPad apps when he allows me to be part of his play. I plan to use it, his language is coming along but still functional rather than descriptive. Still working on Who what where when why how at 7 years old.
I heard someone say once, "Be more interesting than his distractions." That is not always easy, as a parent.
