Courtney has been using a device since she was 3. She quickly learned how to use it to request her favorite items such as food and specific toys. After a while she learned how to label colors and other items.
We’ve been stuck at one word phrases for the most part this whole time. We’ve been working on using 2-3 word phrases for a while now. Now and then we would see some increase in this but for the most part Courtney just uses one word phrases to communicate with us with her talker.
As of recent, she is more spontaneous with using two word requests! Meaning instead of just saying “milk” with her talker, she is now saying “want milk”. We are only seeing it with the carrier phrase “want” but baby steps!!! So proud, Courtney!!!
