Abbey Reading & Spelling Using Edmark and Proloquo2Go…so far, so good!! She’s a reader!!

IMG_7283 IMG_7284 IMG_7285

Abbey is working on a reading curriculum at school called Edmark and seems to be doing well, so I thought it would be good if I could do something over Christmas break to keep working on her reading and spelling.

I googled Edmark and found some great stuff to print out at home, to work on her words at home.  She’s actually on words 11-20 right now, but I know that there are a lot of other words she is reading and can spell, this is just a way to keep track, let her show us what she knows and work on words that she doesn’t know…but especially work on her typing words into her communicating app, hopeful that this will lead to more communication! 

Here’s a video of us working on the stuff I printed out, just day one!  I’ll try to do some more videos as we do more.

Click here to watch the video of Abbey at work.:)

P.S.  I found the printable on a site called http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/.  Some were free and some were a few dollars.  They have all of the Edmark words to work on in many different ways.  They have lots of great stuff!:)

Auditory Training, Then AND Now! Abbey and Technology have come a long way!

So, auditory training has always been an important part of Abbey’s therapy and this is one way we’ve tried to work on it.  In the past it was with a CD and cards, in speech therapy, but now we have cool apps for that!  Abbey does better with using the iPad, plus she’s doing better with remembering sounds of things..AND big plus, she can tell us when she’s all done with a task instead of getting mad, well, most of the time!:)

Here’s a video of her doing ‘sounds’, auditory training almost 6 years ago and then I’ll post one below of it NOW!

So, click on the video below for THEN…

AND, click on this video below for NOW!
