Huge request!

Therapists have been working hard with Courtney on expanding her language using her talker. One way they have her to ask for things is specifying who she wants to get the item she needs. She always needs to be promoted to do this.

Tonight during therapy in our home, Courtney was upstairs and asked her therapist (using talker) if she could go downstairs. She went downstairs, sat down on the couch next to me and spontaneously made this multiple word request!

To those families who are new to the journey of AAC. I won’t sugar coat it. It’s a long and hard process. But watching your child sho struggles communicating find that they have a voice and that their voice has power has to be the most amazing thing in the world and worth every ounce of the struggle.
