What a great idea.

I have a couple of small Foster Care grandchildren I will be doing this for this weekend.

Kids with SATB2, as a general rule, don't talk. Ever. Most doctors give up on them living normal lives, and let parents get speech, occupational, etc. therapy just as a toss-off.

Our son did not say "Mama" until he was seven years old.

My wife and I have never accepted that for our son; he is doing grade level work (he's ten; does 4th grade "readin', writin', and 'rithmatic")... and is starting to put together spoken sentences unprompted. Most of the time, only the family can understand, but it's getting better and better by the day. So, this was a big fuckin' hairy deal to our family:

"I sneezed three times and Mama gave me a tissue." After I had asked him how his day at the museum went, he said it unprompted, so clearly, my wife made him repeat it for video, and he was a little nervous, so she had to prompt him the second time through with sign language, but this is pretty close to how it originally sounded, too.
