Sweet Talk

Another new word attempt!

Not sure I could be more excited right now! I really have to stop myself giving him 30 bags of haribo every day due to my own excitement at hearing him say ‘swee’! 

School have been introducing various speech interventions designed to promote communication, and it’s incredible to see how Franklin’s vocalisations are improving every week. 

Motivation is key and sweets is obviously a motivating factor for Franklin. By using words he is interested in will help ensure he remains motivated while learning, which increases the likelihood he’ll continue to use the same communication skills going forward and hopefully onto new words. 

I am hoping with the correct continuous help and support he could maybe even become verbal one day 🙏🏻🤞 or at the very least vastly improve his overall communication skills thus reducing his extreme limitations in this area. I do believe having the ability to express his needs will give him a better and more comfortable quality of life. 

Bring on the Haribo bulk buy!!
