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.
