It’s so amazing to watch your child who struggles to learn, to pick up things so quickly, but I’ll tell you what is even more amazing to me…seeing her happy doing it, smiling, looking like she’s proud of herself. The other thing that just makes my heart smile is seeing her relationship with her behavior specialist, you can tell, Abbey just loves her! She looks at her, she references her, she plays with her (what is she gonna do when I put the wrong one down? Smiles:) and she enjoys her time with her. She’s not always easy to get to work, even when it’s fun, when she’s tired or grumpy…but we all have those days and that’s ok! We’ll take what we can get! Abbey is obviously having fun here, that’s key! Whether it’s the velcro, the stickers, playing with her specialist, or all of the above…whatever works, it’s important to keep trying new ways, new things until you find something that works and that’s a gift that her specialist has.
Now, in a perfect world, all of my friends could have people in their lives like Abbey’s team…something I long for, pray for and work as hard as I can to see them have! If you need help finding help, please let me know! I don’t know all the answers, but I know where to look for them…..from way too many years of searching!
Proud of you Abbey, you GO GIRL!!

I love this video. It is so neat to see her smile when she gets positive reinforcement. It looks, at one point like she was intently waiting to hear if she did well and then the smile came after she was told. I love, love, love it!
