Nik’s memory has been improving a lot lately. Or atleast, the expressive component of it. His memory may have always been good, but since he wasn’t talking, it was hard to know.
He just has to listen to a song/rhyme 3 or 4 times, and he’s got it. Some of what he’s been singing lately:
I’ve been trying to find songs and rhymes that involve a lot of hand motions. Since his fine and gross motor skills are behind as well, training finger and hand movements are important. He is very resistant to the obvious “Here, do this!” instructions from his tutors, so I looked around for alternatives, where I could sneak the motions in during a fun activity. Then I shared this with the tutors and they are slowly coming around to the realization that this is working!
