762Re: [Families of Angelman Syndrome] talking
- Nov 5, 2005Hi, our Isabella is 5 and at this point she only says
bye-bye, baby and mama. She doesn't say them
spontaneously only with prompting, but I hope she
eventually will say them without the prompt. She gets
OT, PT and speech at her school and they go over
vocabulary words with her. She understands so much
more then she can say. If you say "look behind you" or
"go pick up your toy" or whatever she responds
correctly. She also babbles like crazy, makes lots of
squeals and noises. Seems more vocal lately then she
did before. She laughs and giggles all the time, often
inappropriately to the situation. She walks on her own
and learned to walk at about the usual time, but her
gait is odd and not always quite steady, like going up
a step or down a step can trip her up, or sometimes
she just trips over her own feet. Isabella used to
bite and pinch especially when she was excited and we
did firmly over and over tell her to stop and she is
much better about it. They also reinforce all that at
her school. Susan
