My husband more than a Daddy is also a teacher for Tommy. He is teaching to Tommy how to model, sign and imitate the word "book". Meanwhile, he combines the Speech therapy with the Physical therapy. See the video below (Pay attention because you will heard Tommy saying "Hi dada").
The books my husband is showing Tommy in the video are from the collection Sign and Sing-a-long by Annie Kubler. We killed 3 birds with one stone with these books.
- Speech development while we sing and learn the signs. We also say and repeat the word "book".
- Hand Play by including the signs spider, rain, son, teddy bear, sky and light.
- Brain development by crossing the midline while he signs spider and teddy bear. Crossing the midline is important for brain development because it connects the two hemispheres of the brain. According to the book Bright From the Start by Jill Stamm, "the better the connections between its sides, the more smoothly the whole brain is able to work and, therefore, the better the learning of certain skills".
My husband is a great teacher for Tommy. He is not just teaching Tommy about Speech or Physical skills, he is also teaching Tommy to be a good man through the example. Adam is a good role model. I couldn't choose better!
