Making Decisions

"As a baby, we taught Alex to speak and listen. When he was 4, we noticed that he learned best through seeing. So we now use Manually Coded English." ~ Jim

Your child will grow and your family will change. Decisions that may have been good for your child as an infant may not be the best for your child as a toddler. This includes how your child learns to communicate. As your child grows older, you may find that you need new language and communication plans to meet your child’s changing needs. As he or she becomes an adult, your child may wish to make his or her own changes. Some families will change more often than others. Decision-making is a process just as your child’s growth is a process.
