We found the perfect therapist, Libby, at Lawnwood, for David. She's motivating him with the indoor swing. For example, if he could hold a long sound /ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss/ he got to swing for a long time. Another time if he could continue to think of words that begin with the /k/ sound she kept him swinging, but as soon as he paused the swing stopped. He also had to say the word correctly.
She also was using erasable crayons on the mirror (cool idea for teaching) to list all the words he said. I want a swing in my house. For me. :) Looks like fun.
