Verbal manners are one thing we’ve always tried to teach Adrian. He’s pretty regular about asking for things using a verbal approximation, the sign or the button for please. But thank you is always required a prompt.
Until the other day. For the first time, Adrian thanked me for making his drink. Without a prompt. Without so much as a glance in his direction. He looked me straight in the eye and signed, “Thank you.”
Now I’m the grateful one 🙂
