Oliver has said that he would like to keep a video library of him typing each day and describing something about himself. Yesterday, Oliver finally, finally, had his first day of school after many false starts, so it seemed like a good place to start. If you look in the upper right hand corner of this page you will see a link to his video library where I've placed the video. I can't assure you that we will manage to post something everyday but we will try!! This first video is pretty long but without edits you can see how much effort goes into typing and the kind of support that Oliver needs just to get his words out. You can also see my occasional impatience, Oliver's occasional frustration and my fresh from the shower hair!! But this is what facilitated communication looks like for us.
If you have any questions that you would like Oliver to try and answer he would also love to hear from you! Sometimes I think it feels kind of lonely for him in our little corner of America, so comments help, too!!
