New to Therapy

We are starting to incorporate yes/no cards into our life. The goal here is to allow Brooklyn to "tell us" what she wants with a little less guessing on our part. Obviously red is for no and green is for yes. I am sure there will be more to come in the future on this topic! This is her first switch activated toy. For those of you not part of the "Rett World" the switch is the little purple button you see on the floor. It is hooked up to the toy and the toy is only activated when Brooklyn touches (and holds down) the switch. She is catching on to this one REAL quick. Yesterday during therapy Harley (our dog) came in and laid down on the switch - activating the toy with NO work on Brooklyn's part. I think she is going to see how she can get Harley to do that more often!
Of course I needed to throw in a picture of Brooklyn. She is wearing her new Wiggles T-shirt (thanks Aunt Kristin!) that she got at the concert. She is all smiles this morning!
