What are your yeahs and sighs?

Recommended Posts

I wanted to start this post because progress with our special ones can be so slow and any little progress deserves praised and happiness and smiley faces. However things in there lives can cause us to sigh. I wanted to call them boos but that is just too depressing and makes me feel hopeless---so sighs are a better way to express the situation as it could mean it is what is or will need more work

Love this, because it is easy to concentrate on the "sighs" and forget the "yeahs."

Potty trained in a half a day over Christmas break

Has gained 20 words and 10 approximations since Sept when he started ST.

He hugs his SLP when he arrives.

He will sit for 40 min beig read to



He has been classified as severe in his speech problem
