Abbey is doing it, she’s learning to use sentences! Here’s a video of her asking for waffles, click here. I’ve been talking to the gals working with Abbey about how to teach her to do this and we’ve been brain storming, then at our last school meeting, the school team and I came up with which words to add to start with, to start the process. It sure has been a long road to get here, but it’s so cool to see her catch on so well! It sure takes a village! Here’s a screen shot of Abbey’s ‘home page’ with the words we added.
Here’s the screen shot of her asking for waffles. In the video, you can see how easily she navigates to find what she wants, another long work in progress! Proloquo2Go is so amazingly easy to add whatever we want and however we need it on there!
So, we used to have just one button for ‘I want’, we started by separating that into two. The school had already really been working on having her add on ‘please’ to the end of her requesting sentences, to that part was easy for her. Then we added ‘to, a, and the’, which I think will take a bit longer for her to learn to use. So, what do you think?:)
Thank you so much for everyone’s help and support, including Abbey’s ‘team’ and the folks at Proloquo2Go!
