我不是读心者

Dear 埃维,
As much as I'd 爱 this superpower, 妈妈 is not a mind reader. When you are 坐着 in front of me asking for 音乐, I do not know what song you are thinking of in your head. I ask you if you want "The Cat Came Back," "Rocketship Run," or "Stand Up Sit Down," but you just growl 在 me and get frustrated that I can't read your mind. 

因此,我正在为此做一些事情。 

爱,
妈妈


I am making my own personalized 埃维 聚醚砜 board. PECS stands for Picture Exchange Communication System. It is very useful for helping nonverbal people to communicate.

埃维 has 匹配 通讯 图书 made of 聚醚砜 pictures 在 学校 and 在 home. But when it comes time for what song she wants to be played, the field is open.

埃维's 学校 provided a Communication Book for home to match her book 在 学校. It even has pictures of each of her classmates and teachers and therapists!

埃维's song 菜单 choices in her 学校 通讯 book. Note the dinosaur sticker I added because there was no choice for "We Are the Dinosaurs" by 劳里·伯克纳(Laurie Berkner).

“我们是恐龙”是人群的最爱,在学校这不是一个选择! 因此,现在该是大手笔了。 进入Evie的歌曲菜单。
劳里·伯克纳(Laurie Berkner)和帕蒂·舒克拉(Patty Shukla)。 
我没有一遍又一遍真正想要听的歌曲,因此添加了喜欢的书籍和活动。
一些瑞秋·科尔曼(Rachel Coleman),童谣,圣经歌曲,书籍和活动选择
我将它们放在保护套中使用,直到她的歌曲选择发生变化为止。

如果您有兴趣制作自己的作品,请访问免费模板的链接: //pecsusa.com/free-materials/.  Under Worksheets and Checklists, there are two differently-sized options for 聚醚砜 grids. In preparation, I googled each song that 埃维 liked and found an image that she would recognize for each song. I saved them all to a folder, and then opened the template in Word and inserted a picture in each square.

希望这可以帮助其他人减少读书的需要!


保姆...我的意思是婴儿应用

I started 母亲hood determined not to let 埃维 have too much 检测时间. I would say that still 应用程式lies for TV, but I am now convinced that the iPad is a great tool for 埃维's learning. She is, after all, a child of the 未来! As technology gets used more and more, especially with assisted learning, I see it as an advantage for 埃维 to already know how to use an iPad.


这是我们最喜欢的应用程序!

Peekaboo Farm: When 埃维 first started looking 在 this 应用程式, she didn't understand that she should hit the screen to see the animals. Now she understands Cause and Effect, and gets rewarded by a cow 应用程式earing and mooing 在 her. This is not to be confused with Peekaboo Kids (instead of Farm), which isn't bad, but 表演 certain animals answering nature's call and then cackling, if you're offended by that.

Peekaboo Fridge: A variant of Peekaboo Farm, but just as good. If we are teaching her about food, then why not? They also have Peekaboo 圣诞, Peekaboo Halloween, and Peekaboo Forest. I personally don't like the Halloween and Forest versions.

Smart Rattle: This is not a high tech game. But it's riveting somehow. Every 20 seconds, the scene changes and objects like farm animals, cars, ocean life, etc float across the screen and make noises or spin around if the baby touches the screen. Evie could stare 在 it for hours. You can shake your phone and make the animals shake around too. She has great coordination with holding an iPhone (of course).

Leapfrog Toddler Rhythms: 埃维 爱s 音乐, and she 爱s this 应用程式. She can sit with this 应用程式 (just staring and listening) for an hour if I let her.

Baby Sign: 埃维 likes watching the baby sign words, and we learn 婴儿手语 slowly. Very slowly. With nice splotches of drool on my iPad screen.

Giggle Gang: Somehow these little fuzzy circle people who sing when you tap on them make 埃维 mesmerized. There's a piano keyboard on it too. Good 因果.

Patty Shukla: Our latest is the Patty Shukla Toddler App (volume 4). Patty Shukla's soothing yet fun 语音 has allowed me to reclaim my games in Words With Friends and catch a Pokemon here and there in the living room. 埃维 is fascinated with the 唱歌 and I've seen her following the motions of the 孩子们 on the screen. Her favorite song is 5 Little Penguins. That's my girl!

埃维独自一人展示自己的好姿势(她的双腿可能没有那么张开,但这是一项正在进行的工作)。

Pandora: Our current favorite stations are Raffi, Music Together, and Toddler Music. Evie 爱s Raffi's "Brush Your Teeth" song with a passion, even when Daddy makes up the words and they are so wrong. (Love you, husband!)

我偶然发现了一篇有关care.com的出色文章,其中“22个有特殊需要的儿童的最佳应用。”包括指向 妈妈的电子表格,其中列出了所有类别的应用 you can think of: 非语言儿童的交流,语言发展,数学,游戏,音乐等
The article also describes 建议 by 专家 for 应用 to help social cues, telling time, dexterity, and other important life skills.

My next project is to take pictures of certain objects/verbs that we use often, and train 埃维 to point to them when she wants to do these things. She is still learning to point--right now 指向 means jabbing me in the face with her thumb. I'm told by our OT that 孩子们 with DS tend to learn to point with the
