AW: Kind of a Xmas Miracle...ok maybe not a miracle...

...and not TOO much of a big deal...but definitely worth celebrating!

DD has ASD and pretend play is really tough for her - we've been working on it in EI for awhile, especially with phones. DH gave her 2 old cell phones and her therapists will pretend to talk on it to her, and make it ring, etc.

Well, for Xmas my uncle gave her "My First Purse" with a pretend bright pink cell phone - like, totally fake looking. And I pretended to make it ring and talk into it and then I gave it to her and said, "It's for you" and she goes, "Hello? ok. Ok." And then babbled some nonsense words, then "bye bye" and put it in her "purse". 
 
I know it's a small victory but it's SUCH an awesome thing when something you've been working on in therapy actually takes! Yay!

Merry Christmas to all of you guys!

  • I know it's sometimes hard for us as parents of special needs kids to see the blessings they bring to our lives, but learning to celebrate every little milestone, as insignificant as it may seem, is definitely one of those blessings in my mind. So excited for you, and for her! May it be the first of many successes!
