I was recently reviewing videos for one of my private clients, Gal and his mother Eden.
I noticed something very interesting. There were specific times when Gal was communicating in 1 word sentences with a more robotic tone and no eye contact- and there were times when the same child was communicating with fuller sentences, more facial expression and eye contact.
What was the difference between the times of fuller communication and the ones with more limited communication?
Me, my sister and dear friend for a morning beach date
Why did I post this picture for you? Read on...
I saw this post from a mother with a child with autism on Facebook the other day:
Here is a picture of my youngest son, Yozi (age 6). He is in first grade this year and just a couple of months ago his teacher called me in for a meeting.
She told me that he is scribbling on all of his pages in his workbooks, is 'checking out' during class, is no longer participating and she was very concerned about him.
Happy Mother's Day!
Today, in the United States, Mother's Day is being celebrated. Even though I now live in Israel- I still love the opportunity to honor mothers, around the world.
Here is a picture of me and what I call, "my pack of monkeys" and my husband of course...
As you may have seen from my last video blog, I am seriously committed to helping your child make a leap in his/her communication.
Last week I spoke about the fact that the single area that parents want to help their children with most (no matter what age or stage) and, interestingly, feel the most stuck is...communication development.
What are you missing in helping your child make communication breakthroughs?
The answer is simple- a communication road map.
As you probably know by now, I am seriously committed to helping you witness your child make HUGE strides in all areas of development, especially communication.
I have seen, time and time again, that communication development is the top priority for most families, worldwide, and yet, it is also the area where parents feel the most 'stuck' and lack the most guidance.
I got such a flood of responses from my video message last week on positive affirmations, that I decided to send you another quick video.
Let me first give you some background.
Yesterday I went with my children to visit my parents. While we were there, my father began reading us a joke he had found. As he read it, he began laughing so hysterically he could barely finish telling the joke!
What does this have to do with you?
I'm gonna make this quick.
While on my morning run, I decided I wanted to TALK to you, instead of write a newsletter for you this week.
Take a quick look at this video message I made for YOU (plus there is a fun exercise in here I made for you and your child too!). I would love to hear from you- please leave your comments below!
These are my boys (Chen and Yonatan). Don't they seem full of kindness and brotherly love?
Well.....yes, there are those lovey -dovey brotherly moments (and boy do I cherish those!) AND there are moments of intense fighting and wrestling- which all falls into the range of normal...MOST of the time.
This is me and my 8 year old son Chen.
2 weeks into the school year we moved Chen, and my other 2 children to a new school. The other 2 transitioned pretty smoothly- they made friends quickly, adapted to the new learning style and academic levels and all in all just rolled with it.
But not Chen.
