can I have a proud mummy moment, have been signing with ds non verbal , gd , for 18 months and the last few months he started siging back we now have 2 dozen signs but this morning he signed more then drink , then later signed car followed by chips and when i was like what he pointed to macdonaald picture not that we go regulary and yes he got his macdonlds
then top it of we been working on b sound using ball and he signed Ball and actully said it ,
That's brilliant Ww have been using sign with our ds 10 for about 18-20 mionths now and he is surprising us all the time with new signs. We have also noticed that the more he signs the more he seems to understand us when we verbally ask him to do things. Well done.
That's fantastic - really creative! Can I add one? I asked DS2 where the remote control was yesterday and he POINTED (properly, with his index finger) up to the top of the TV (where we keep it from time to time to stop him from constantly fast forwarding). I was so excited!
Phoenix - absolutely deserved proud mummy moment, totally get you on this one, (as i hope we are heading that way next) YAYYY !!! I physically got excited for you just reading it!!! A 2 word sentence !!! Well done your DS, and well done you!!! FABULOUS, FANTASTIC, BRILLIANT!!!
Sphil - YAYYY!!! that is wonderful news! Properly formed an everything (I understand your excitement at that too, we used to have a 'thumb' point, but lost it ) but YAYYY!!! love these threads!!! XXX
An update. Put the remote control on top of the TV again and when DS2 asked for a video the conversation went like this: Me: Where's the remote control? DS2: Control control Me: Yes, remote control - where is it? DS2: Whereisit? Me: DS2, can you point to the remote control DS2: Point, point (pointing wildly everywhere BUT the top of the TV)
So my proud mummy moment may have been a one off .
DS did that kind of thing to me all the time. It was so annoying. DH would come home and I would be jumping on one foot telling him DS's wonderful new achievement, but then no performance!! The good thing sphil is that he can do it! and will do it again for sure.
