Today was my first 5 hours alone with a 4 year old deaf girl named Romy 🙂 She’s really sweet and adorable and all in all we had a good day together! Mostly for my sake (but just in case your curious 🙂 here are the signs I learned today- through lots of guessing to figure out what she was trying to communicate. Hopefully I won’t forget these while I’m in Ohio!
A lot of signs make so much sense- but some of these…not so much.
These were the basics of today 🙂 I also leaned ‘fast’ because who wants to be pushed on a swing any other way! And her own personal sign for Caillou, her favorite cartoon. Lots more to come, I’m sure! I have to say, the most difficult part of my day was having her tap her elbow over and over again off and on for 15 minutes while I tried to guess that all this frustrated little girl wanted was a cracker! A few other signs that she used frequently today were Mommy, please, thank you, more, candy and sticker.
