Is it too much to ask for eta I asked

Got Xavier's paperwork back from early intervention. They suggested I take pictures of one of his cups, favorite food, toy and having it in a set place so he point to what he wants/ needs. To also make a photo book with different objects and look at it with him, talk about it, ask questions etc. I don't have an issue with doing that with him, but they suggest doing this 10-20 times a day. Do you think it's too much to ask of the daycare to do it a few times on the days he is there longer.

I asked about it when I went to pick the kids up. Not a problem bring the book in and the pictures.She has been trying to get a special set of tools to use with kids like Xavier but didn't have the justification to buy it. The daycare is owned by the college. Most of the people who work there are in education classes at the college.

I think you can ask if the day care is willing and push how important EI made it sound... See if they will do it. IMO it never hurts to ask. It will help his language skills and eventually, when he becomes verbal it will help everyone. Daycare, you... Everyone with a vested interest. Hugs!

I would talk to the director and ask her. 

THinking back to teh 10 to 18 month olds I had at LAYG, I wouldn't have been able to do it. 

With the 18 to 24 month olds I had at SSCC I might have been able to do it once a day, especially if the child was an early riser from nap. 

Edit: I would have at least tried. I can't think how it would have worked with the younger group I had (man, they should all be graduating this year).

When Xavier isn't napping either the Director or the lady he likes is his personal buddy. After the IFSP meeting the center will be able to hire another person and the lady he likes will become his aid. I just feel like I'm asking for a lot and they have been great about everything so far.

Glad they're willing to help! And those were great suggestions. I may try the book with g. Not the cup and plate part as he can tell me he's hungry now, but he does have a difficult time answering questions about any given topic, so thanks for the idea.

Picture books are also great for kids when they are going someplace new. 

Another cute thing is to tell a "social story". You can make up a story the night before anout a boy named x or g... Who is going to -----, and he is going to see this, and going to see that, and this will be fun. It helps to answer any questions they may have but cant verbalize. It lets them know how they are going to need to behave.. ( if there is  line in the story you can say that x waited patiently even though it was hard) it lets them know what to expect, and seeing the pictures eases anxiety about what do do and where your going.
