Today was sweet

Today Ashley attending a dance class at CTN (Children's Treatment Network).  She was tired after a night of very little sleep and was complaining minutes before during a quick stop for the potty.  Once we entered the room and the music began she was all smiles and giggles this is her thing for sure.  

There was two instructors and four kids including one of her friends. She was so cute laughing the whole time and was able to follow some of the instructions to walk in different directions, freeze on demand, clap and even get down low to the ground. 

Both of us enjoyed every minute of it.  The hour went by in a flash.  I hope CTN will make this a regular activity because Ashley will be the first one to sign up.

On top of dancing Ashley used this class as an opportunity to pull out her new proloquo2go voice and with my iPhone she introduced herself to the instructor and and said hello.  Today was pretty sweet! 

Here's a look at top page of her new voice .. the coolest thing ever for my girl. 
She just needs an iPad2.

Cool! yes, I hope they make it into a series of classes. Did you see the piece about the Dance school here that has a class for kids with disability? It was started by the mom of a child with CP:

If CTN doesn't make it a regular class, you might want to talk to this mom about how she got the class for her daughter going.

Congrats re Proloquo! I think one of our problems is we put way too much stuff on it at the beginning. I'm glad Ashley is enjoying it!
