SKILL OF THE DAY : Pointing (Appropriately Using Gesture to Communicate) Why Do We Teach Pointing?
- Pointing is an important non-verbal means of communication.
- Pointing is a skill that neuro-typical children learn spontaneously. Children with ASD need to be formally taught this skill, as instead of pointing they ‘drag’ or ‘lead’ adults to what they want. Even very young children with ASD can be very strong and as they grow older and stronger the adult may be injured if dragging behaviour is allowed to persist. How to Promote:
- Model appropriate pointing whenever possible as you communicate with your child; e.g. when giving your child a drink, point to the drink and say “Drink” before you give it to him. - In order for pointing to be an effective form of communication the child needs to be taught to look at the other person. - Wait. Remember to give your child time to process and then point. - When your child is ready to make a choice rather than letting him grab the preferred item, anticipate his action and mould his hand gently into a point. - Ensure that all key adults use pointing with the child – consistency is vital in the acquisition of this skill. - Some children need many fine motor experiences to help them develop independent pointing. In addition to helping your child learn how to point (gently put your hand over his and form his index finger into a point), you may need to give your child many experiences with actions to songs and finger plays as well as a range of other fine motor activities.(Source : Early Years)

🎬 SNACK ATTACK
After battling with a stubborn vending machine, a vivacious old lady plans to indulge in some cookies (@oreo perhaps) while she waits for her train. Much to her surprise, she encounters a millennial who gets in the way of savoring her sweet treat.
The urban legend about making assumptions fits right into any @socialthinking group lesson
BTW I’m totally feelin’ that Granny...can’t a girl just enjoy some cookies (and @starbucks) in peace?! .

Be the first to smile, be the first say hello and start a conversation, be the one to hold the door open for a stranger. Be kind. Pave the way for others to follow by setting an example. Light the path to enlighten those around you and be the change you wish to see in the world. You can make a difference. 💕 #humpdayfeels

After a nightmare of a day yesterday where I managed to delete my whole essay. I can confirm it's vodka. Luckily I've managed to turn into a robot and rewrite it, its soul destroying but I'm almost finished ... again! .

Today's Wednesday Wisdom is all about the #Qalo ring. This ring is perfect for the SLP who is always washing hands, sculpting Playdoh, or doing oral motor exercises. It is a simple silicone ring that comes in a variety of colors and designs. Of course, I chose pink! My husband has a grey one. (He works outside so it's perfect for him!) I no longer have to be concerned with Playdoh getting in my wedding rings or scratching a little one doing an oral mech exam. I finally bought one over the holidays and it was the best purchase! This is not a sponsored post....I just really like this ring. It is perfect for SLPs whether you work in the school or private/medical setting.
