Building on Communication
By Jasmine Faison and Jonathan Linton
Now that Jade is over 1 year old, her communication and social skills are growing each and every day. From using the sign language symbol meaning “to eat” to let us know she is hungry, pointing at objects she wants, letting out a great big scream when she’s excited, repeating phrases and learning new words, our little one has quite the personality accompanied with a unique and versatile communication style.
Talk, Sing and Point is in full play as Jade is discovering more about the things around her and eager to show/tell someone what she’s learned. As we enter into the second half of the year, it is important for us to pay attention to what she is showing interest in, so we can start to cultivate those interests on a deeper level. Talk, Sing, and Point is helping us do just that!
