she ( I will call her K) is 2 1/2 and has speach delays and some fine motor skill issues. But a smile that lights up the room!!!! :lovestruc . So today at lunch she has to answer YES by nodding her head if she wants more food. She did fairly well with this. So I added the sign for "please" to have K use and she wasnt' getting it. Fast forward to later today, the other kiddos asked for M& Ms so we got a bowl out and went around the group and had each of the girls say and sign "more, please, thankyou" , K was the last of the 4 to be able to reach in the bowl and wouldn't you know it!!!! She signed "more please, thankyou" this went on for 10 rounds. I am soooo proud of her. :thumbsup2:thumbsup2

That is so very wonderful for her. I can so understand how proud you are of her and how great an accomplishment this is for her. Have you ever thought of or tried the signing times DVD?? My DD loved these and learned many signs from them.
