It was a great day today. I was working with a non-verbal client. Suddenly, I heard her eye controlled dynavox speak.
Her first words to me?
If you can believe it, it was "I love stories."
I looked into her brown eyes, and continued working as I related the story of William who went to church last Sunday with Grandma and discovered a foil wrapped bunny in his activity bag.
When I got to the recounting of how "CHOKLACK!" reverberated throughout the church and that his delight would not be silenced, her eyes grew wide with delight and her mouth burst open, and she laughed and laughed and laughed.
The moment was so perfectly beautiful that for a time, I was the one who could not speak.
