Since I'm always interested to see how people are incorporating assistive communication devices into their daily lives, I thought you might like to take a peek at one of the ways Lily is using hers at school.
This video shows her following along with the story Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? and if you listen closely, you can hear when she selects a button on the device.
As you can see, the therapist is doing some of the scrolling for Lily so that she stays on the correct category. If left completely on her own, Lily would probably opt to finish up story time a little early, change to a different category, choosing unlimited snacks and outside playtime.
While I'm happy to see the Bird using Proloquo and her Touch and getting more comfortable with it, I still long for the day I hear her own sweet voice say what animals she sees rather than pressing a button. Come on words!!
If any of you have a video of your kiddo using an assistive communication device, I'd love to see it. I get so many good ideas from all of you and would love to see what you're doing. Feel free to share - maybe by leaving a link on a comment below?
Have a great day!
