Correct Words Pronounciation
The first activity, the therapist taught Amirul to pronounce correctly. If Amirul pronounce correctly, he will be rewarded with one block to put into the basket. Using this block, Amirul was introduced with open & close concept as well as shape. Firstly, the therapist knocked the basket lid 3 times and said Open. After she took out all the blocks, she close the lid and said Close. The objective of this to introduce Amirul Open & Close concept. After that the therapist corrected Mummy’s pronunciation.
One and All Concept
Similar to last week activity but using different educational tool aid. Amirul still having difficulty to differentiate between One and All. I had to become role model and took all small chips from the therapist’s hand, just to make Amirul understand what is All. She told me, if I want to make it Amirul understand, I need to practice the same thing repeatedly.
Flash Cards & Two Steps Instruction
Flash card is a MUST activity for Amirul. The easiest way to increase Amirul vocabulary counts and introduction of new words. Out of 4 animal’s flash card, Amirul recognize two of them. In addition, the therapist is also testing the understanding of two instructions at once. She gave him 2 small stones and instruct him to match the with two pictures. Amirul needs few seconds to process the instructions and execute it.
What we need to do:
To encourage Amirul to talk and add new words to his vocabulary, I need to do more self talk. Self talk in another word is story telling. Besides taking a story book and start do all the story telling thingy, another option is tell Amirul what I am doing. Get Amirul involved in my daily choas and explain to Amirul how’ is the thing done, decribe to Amirul things that I used to do words. For example :
Situation : Clean up Amirul’s toys
Amirul come help mummy clean up the toys. Amirul has so many toys. Amirul please put back your toys inside the red basket. Look Amirul, mummy found your dinasours, chicken, cat, tractors. Amirul how cat sounds.. miow..miow.. Amirul, cat has two eyes. Amirul also has two eyes.
