I’ve almost got Tyler to use sign language for “Help” when he wants me to take a screenshot of something on this tablet!!!
This will be the first successful sign he’s used since before he regressed.
Even though he CAN do it physically, it seems like it’s a mental block that he can’t put the motions together in order to create a sign.
So I take his hands and do the sign, then after a while I take his wrists to help do the sign, then I use his forearms, then his elbows and then his upper arms… (From me having most of the control to me just there as a form of support) then eventually, he won’t need me to help him at all.
It’s actually how I got him to do most of the things that he can do. (Like putting counting cookies in the counting jar.)
It’s also the way that Jax seems to be learning. 🙂
