My Daughter Says… #1

I wanted to start a serial of conversations that my daughter and I have because she is largely low-verbal, there are some days that she has creative speech.

Here was a quick exchange between Ami and I on my way to dropping her off to preschool.

Ami: Can I listen to Alphabet song?
Me: You can listen to it later.
Ami: I’ve got an idea.
Me: What’s your idea, sweetie?
Ami: You play Alphabet song.

For those who may not know, my daughter is autistic. She was non-verbal up until about 3.5 years old, where before that, she only had 2 or 3 words to communicate to us what she wanted such as “apple”, “water”, and “sandwich”. Which is not to say she didn’t talk. Her enunciation was beautiful, though scripted, known as echolalia.

Everyday she is growing her vocabulary and I enjoy our conversations, though they do come off a little sassy, she is such an interesting person, I appreciate the little glimpses she allows to see every now-and-then.
