The cues I use
Mum’s definition of a “COMMUNICATION BUDDY’
“Finding ways to develop shared attention into activities. This allows Angela to participate in her life, rather than just comply.”
The basics & practical examples
These are some short clips, descriptions and examples of my everyday interactions and some of the cues I use to communicate what I want, and who I am.
HAVING FUN & BEING ME
- Push away – I don’t like it.
- For choosing things
- Hello! (insert video)
- For making choices of things.
- Lets go! (insert video)
- Shy or embarrassed – hand over face
- I don’t like this – extending arms
I mainly like to use touch & smell for making choices. Especially when choosing flowers as a customer at the local florist.
