Siri showing improvements in her communication skills ...

In the morning after CARD and breakfast, I requested Siri to continue working on the bag inserts for Autism Society of Wisconsin Conference. I asked her “Siri you want mommy to help you or no”? She said “no”. I asked, “Nana, you want to watch YouTube while working”. Siri said “YouTube yes”. She worked until I completed cooking lunch. 

After I left the kitchen she worked for 30mts more and then the stapler sound stopped. I didn’t go to check on her as I know she is watching her YouTube channel. I could hear the dance songs of Telugu, Hindi and...

Siri's ability to recall ...

Siri this evening came to me with a hair brush, a comb and her hair dryer and said “mommy to do my hair”. I was almost done with my coffee, I took my final sip and told Siri to put away my coffee cup in the kitchen.

As a mom, I see her as a sweet, innocent, happy, content and a gentle girl. She works very hard and always loves to be helpful to others.  Teach her the way she can learn and I am confident she can learn any new skill.

Can't wait to see what else will come her way as she...
