My new goal is to say more words in my head. I’m going to try when I’m answering math questions. My thought is that mom and I can point to a, b, c, d, e…
Maybe doing math can help me talk. All I’m doing is reinforcing talking – math and writing.
[How does that work?] When I write a word, maybe I’ll practice making the sound in my head.
[Was that working when we were doing math today?] About 10% of the time.
[Tell me about the 10% – What was going on in those cases? Did they have something in common?] Yes. All those times you [mom] helped by naming the letters before [the one I pointed at]. [Giving you a chance to fill in the blank?] Yes. Let’s do that to start.
