AVT on the Fly
Now keep in mind this all comes from a non crafty mom. So almost all of our therapy is "on the fly" so to speak. I truely admire the AVT moms who homeschool or the just plain crafty AVT moms. . I just don't have those skills or patience I guess, but that's okay, because I have learned how to do AVT and get my floors done all at the same time. And yes, this is totally AVT. Brook loves to mop (and do other chores...can you believe it?) but I can say things like "mop in front of the heater first and then near the plant..." or even more sequencing by sweeping first, then mop each of the three rooms with tile in a particular order. Although we weren't doing any AVT while they were swimming yesterday, a water gun could also turn into a fun AVT style game. "spray something that starts with the /f/ sound"....or "spray something that is heavy...spray the garbage can once and the chair three times" I could go on for days here. And check out the kids at our therapy session yesterday at the park....So AVTs not that bad huh?
And if any of you AVT moms have figured out how to narrate instructions for the hearing dads, and actually have them follow your lead, do tell !! I'm just finding the AVT thing isn't working on the husbands....but will keep trying *grin*
