Communication

Jacob was shy at first but warmed up after a couple of minutes.

He needed word by word and sign cues to request “I want ____”.

Pronunciation is above average but low language expression.

He labeled animals in 10/10 trials.  He had pause between words in phrases of 2 words.

Myrna and I modeled “I want ___” phrasing.  He independently said “cow fall, pig move” during play.  Has greater than 75 words in his vocabulary!

I need to use more of a sing-song voice to model connected speech.  I should also model 2-3 word phrases when Jacob uses 1 word to label or comment.  This will help expose him to proper phrasing of sentences.
