Today, I ran into a former student and he is doing wonderfully. His mom shared that technology, like an iPod and an iPad have totally transformed his ability to communicate. When he saw me, he began furiously signing with me. Sadly, I had forgotten much of his unique use of signs, but I knew the gist of what he wanted – for me to stop talking to his mom!
It made my day to see him happy, but more so to see mom relaxed. If our children are happy….us mamas are happy!
