A World with Words

 For years, I have had to tell people that my son is nonverbal.

 "Oh, he doesn't talk."

 "He can't talk."

I have spent countless hours worrying, wondering, praying..."will he ever talk?"

We have lived a world with no words. Lots of noises. Sounds. Screams. Laughs....but no words.

I have always known that there is a chance that he will never talk...and that hurts my SLP heart...and breaks my Mommy heart.

Then I realized that I just wanted him to communicate with me. If that's with his AAC device, I am perfectly happy with that. I really, truly am. To known his wants and needs. To know his thoughts. Just to hear him comment on things. 

LAMP Words for Life has given him the ability to do that. And with his communication with his device has come something else....spoken words. He amazes me every day. He is echoing what we say. Echoing his device.

Tonight, as we watched a video about sharks, he quietly whispered, "shark." He is saying more and more recently, and it still gets me every single time. Little moments like this give me hope that we will one day live in a world with words.

  1. Learning to proofread your work yourself is a a must-have skill. But, it always helps to have a second pair of eyes review your work to make sure you haven't missed embarassing typos, or grammatical and syntactical errors. I'd suggest WordsRU.com for this. It also saves you a lot of time to have your work formatted according to the right style. Saves you a lot of time and allows you to focus on your work.

  2. I agree that a second pair of eyes is absolutely essential to avoid rejections. Through WordsRU.com I was able to get top class editing and proofreading, manuscript critique. They also write excellent author profiles and book synopsis, so pretty much the entire package.
