After another brief episode of malfunction, Adrian’s back to surprising us with his Dynavox V.
The other day he made creative use of some programmed vocabulary. Adrian was ready for dinner (when isn’t he?) but we were waiting on Dad to bring the pizza home. I explained over and over that the food was coming and he needed to wait. He wasn’t satisfied with my answer and went into the page with phrases intended for the use of the microwave. He asked, “How much time?” He asked over and over. I finally set the timer so he could see the time counting down. He seemed happy with that and waited patiently for the pizza to arrive.
Then tonight he was trying to get my attention. He surprised me by going into his keyboard screen and typing the word ‘mom’. He’s never called me using my name before. It was pretty cool! 🙂
