Islas currently loves reciting the three little pigs.
I managed to record this last night, she was in the bath so I recorded my leg but you can hear her as clear as anything.
Yes Islas speech is still mainly repetition, yes when she talks she doesn’t sound like your average 7 year old, yes she does sound a bit like a toddler learning to talk but that’s exactly what she’s doing – learning! Her functional speech is coming on, she’s using more words properly to ask for things and she’s worked incredibly hard for 7 years to get to this point.
They said she couldn’t, they said she wouldn’t, but she did!
