Daniel’s Amazing Words, a set on Flickr.
Recently I have stopped referring to Daniel as non-verbal because he does have a growing vocabulary. He is also occasionally using some words before being prompted.
For months now, he has been writing words with any imaginable type of letters and improvised materials for letters.
Yesterday, the school board’s IPRC met to discuss a space in a special ASD class in our current board. He was approved, which was great news. During the conversations, though, we kept coming back to Daniel’s letters and words, initially mimicking video or tv show credits.
On January 1st this year, though, he actually labelled a picture of a fish as a fish. In the last short while he has been doing something similar with his EA, using a blue crayon to write the word blue and so on with other crayons. She drew a cake and he wrote the word for it.
Please take a peek at the pics in this flickr set because it reflects remarkable achievements in Daniel’s ability to tell us about his universe.
