Ainsley's New Tech-Speak

Yesterday I had such a headache that I couldn't finish the clever post I was writing. Today the sun is out and the yard is beckoning me. I'm hoping this is the year I can get my garden into shape. So I'm just going to post this video without too much explanation. I helped design the overlays (sheets of words) and they made them last week and Steve picked up the device on Friday. Unfortunately we had a stomach bug (vomiting) going around the family so we haven't had a chance to do to much with it at home, although Ainsley takes it to school with her too.  Clearly she loves it and hopefully she'll learn to take it to the next level and actually use for intentional communication. To think it wasn't that long ago that she couldn't even push a button. Looks like we're past that! I thought it was TOO funny that she kept pushing the potty button and giggling. Typical three year old "potty talk". Gotta love it!


  1. LOVE it! She is so thrilled with this. Love how she was praising herself with the awesome.

  2. I can't wait to see where this takes her! I know Harlie's device has made a huge difference for her - and us. She loves having a "voice" and hopefully Ainsley will feel the same (it looks like she already does!). And I think Harlie's efforts at verbalizing have increased since we got the device. It would be awesome if Ainsley has the same reaction!

    Exciting stuff, Susan!!!!

  3. It's awesome to see how excited Ainsley is with the device. I'm sure she'll take off and be communicating with you in no time. Happy Mother's Day Susan!

  4. I LOVE LOVE LOVE This video!!!!!!!!! What a great job Ainsley did with it and omg I just LOVE how excited she was with it!!!!!!!! MUCH LOVE!!! XOXOXOXO
