You eat with a…

One of the areas that the verbal behavior school is working on currently is teaching T to answer fill-in-the-blank questions. For example: A dog says: "woof!" A frog says: "ribbit!" What do you use to wash your hands? "Soap." This is a step beyond mere identification of flashcards or "live" items. Last week's most memorable report from this morning therapist was his response to a newer question. Here it goes:

Therapist: You eat with a…

T: Shovel.

That's my boy!!!

Amen! Unless by shovel, he mean you eat dirt.

Oh, no! He's been spending too much time eating at the same table as me. I've warped him forever! To be fair, it's got to be partially La Hacienda's fault...those chips just beg for a shovel. Mmm.

I love this...at least he knows it is a tool that picks up things and has a handle and a scoop-like part.
Good start, T.

Our son is making up for lost time after suffering a YEAR of eating like a carnivorous rabbit. If he wants a shovel, give him a shovel! :-)
