Pointing to letters

with No Comments

Today we noticed that during our usual draw and recite the Alphabet on the whiteboard, Finn actually pointed to the letters himself as they were called out. Ordinarily he will grab my hand hard and make more point to them as I say them. He pointed more than once as we went through the letters written. I would draw a letter and then he would write as if he were trying to draw the letter I just wrote. I decided to take his hand as I have tried before the help him draw the letter and he let me! *He didn’t jerk away his hand forcefully he actually allowed my hand to guide his in order to form the letter on the board. This was great!!! A step towards communicating by showing him something, not just him showing me/making me to something he wanted!
