We are off to a special needs night at a local museum tonight. It's nice to be able to do positive things together as a family because of Abby's special needs, instead of always having to say to Caleb "We can't do____because of Abby..." He is excited to see the otters at the museum tonight and so are we!
In the meantime, here is a link to a good article written by a speech-language pathologist about encouraging speech with your child. While it is geared toward children with speech delays, the list has good reminders for all parents. (Say it with me now...NOOOOO baby talk!!) :)
