We’ve been working on little flashcards as a communication tool. Pec Cards.
He gets 2 options through the cards, we ask him a question and let him decide which one he chooses. We let him pick between the songs ‘The Wheels on the Bus’ and ‘Baby Shark’ and guess which one he was eager to reach for.
He also gets instrument choices, yes or no options, animals and the goal will be that he will be able to more effectively let us know which choice he wants using the photos. Right now we don’t think he always knows exactly what everything means, but by responding to his choices we are teaching him that his choices make a difference and what they truly represent. It’s all about opening up the communication pathways and working on figuring out what will work best for him.
